Information About Transition of Care
If you are either:
a) in an ongoing course of treatment with a provider for a life-threatening or a degenerative and disabling condition or disease; or
b) in the second or third trimester of a pregnancy when your new coverage becomes effective;
You may be able to continue to receive care from your provider for up to 60 days (or through pregnancy) under your new health insurance policy, even if your provider does not participate in your new health insurer’s network. To receive this transitional care, your provider must agree to accept as payment your new health insurer’s reimbursement for such services and to certain other conditions of providing care under the new policy. If your provider agrees, you will receive the services as if they were being provided by a participating provider and you will only pay for any applicable in-network cost-sharing. You, your representative or your provider should contact your new health insurer to determine if you are eligible for transitional care.
