Date Issued: 12/29/2014
Effective January 1, 2015, EmblemHealth will no longer offer a Medicare PPO II, Medicare PPO III or stand-alone Medicare PDP plan. Members who do not select a new plan effective for January 1, 2015, will be moved to original Medicare, may be without pharmacy coverage, and are at risk of not being able to receive medication fills and refills.
Please assist your affected patients by ensuring that they:
- Elect a new Medicare plan with us. Please see the EmblemHealth Medicare website for details. Deadline to elect a new plan is February 28, 2015.
- Have refills or new prescriptions available, as needed.
We have already called and sent letters to affected individuals to make sure that they understand that their benefit plans will no longer be active in 2015. Please help us make sure no one is left without the medications they need. Thank you.
