Important Changes For Medical Assistance Recipients

Important Changes For Medical Assistance Recipients

August 2nd, 2012
accessPotter County Human Services has issued an important alert for Medicaid recipients. Changes in the law will affect how they will be able to access health care services and providers. Effective Oct. 1, “Access Plus” will no longer operate in Potter, McKean, Cameron, Elk and several other northwestern Pennsylvania counties. Those enrolled in that program will need to join a managed care plan by Sept. 6. If they do not choose one, they will be automatically enrolled in one. Additionally, consumers enrolled in United Health Care Community Plan will need to choose a new plan by Sept. 6.

Officials are concerned that word may not reach all of those affected, or that consumers, family members, providers or advocates may become confused about the changes. As a result, Potter County Human Services will be hosting an informational program from 1:30 to 3:30 pm on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at the Gunzburger Building auditorium in Coudersport. Those attending should use the Water Street entrance. Reservations are being taken at 1-800-274-3258.

Recipients and caregivers need to understand how coverage will change effective Oct. 1, what managed care plan choices are available, what factors to consider before choosing a plan, and what options exist if a plan is not meeting a client’s needs. Similar public meetings, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Health Law Project, are planned for Aug. 6 in Clarion, Aug. 14 in Brookville, and Aug. 13 in Erie. More information on Access Plus is available at the wesbite, accessplus.org. There’s also a 24/7 toll-free Access Plus help line at 1-800-543-7633.

After they "kill off" those YOU deem worthless, they will come after YOUR GROUP.

Maybe your time would be better spent attending the meeting to see the reason for the change and what it means. Sure beats popping off about anything and everything.
