Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care Update

Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care Update

UPDATE:  MLTC Enrollment Lock-In

Starting on December 1, 2018, individuals who enroll with a Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care (“MLTC”) plan for the first time or transfer to a new MLTC plan will be subject to a “lock-in” period.  This is a change from current rules, which do not limit an individual’s ability to switch MLTC plans.

How does the lock-in work?  For the first ninety (90) days after enrollment, an MLTC plan member can disenroll or change plans for any reason.  After 90 days, the individual will be “locked-in” for nine months, during which time he or she will barred from changing plans without good cause.  After the nine-month lock-in period has expired, the MLTC plan member can switch to a different MLTC plan at any time, and for any reason, subject to a new grace period/lock-in for each subsequent transfer.

I am already enrolled in an MLTC plan.  How does this new policy affect me?  Individuals who are already enrolled with an MLTC plan as of December 1, 2018 will not be locked-in to their current plan, but will be subject to a grace period/lock-in if they choose to switch MLTC plans after December 1st.

Coming Soon: Your new Medicare Card!

Coming Soon: Your new Medicare Card!

 Your new Medicare card will be coming soon!

The new Medicare card will have a Medicare number listed on it that is unique to you, instead of your Social Security number to better protect your identity.

Now that card mailings have started, it will take at least a month to finish. So you might get your new Medicare card at a different time than friends or neighbors in your area.

If you have a MyMedicare.gov account, you can sign in and see when your new card has been mailed. If you don’t have a MyMedicare.gov account yet, it’s easy to sign up — just visit MyMedicare.gov. It’s a free, secure way for you to access your personal Medicare-related information.

Though you’ll have a new card, your Medicare coverage and benefits will stay the same.
