We have reports that some individuals have not received the “assignment” letter that was prepared for mailing in mid-June. Providers will be able to confirm which is the assigned plan after 19 July by checking the Eligibility Screen for each member on the Medicaid Web-portal.
In addition, all plans will allow for a reasonable transition (90 days) between existing health care providers and ones covered by the plan (if the existing providers are not); if health professionals who are important to an individual are not enrolled with the assigned plan, you will have that transition period to either help the individual choose another plan or persuade the assigned health plan to enroll the specific health professionals preferred! The Plans will be eager to make accommodations and adjustments and we should be prepared to take advantage of that!
