Cleveland Clinic and CareSource Could Terminate Their Contract – What you need to know
If you are eligible for Medicaid, and Caresource is your Managed Care provider (MCP), you may have received a letter stating that The Cleveland Clinic and CareSource will be terminating their contract as of September 1st.
Gesher would like to remind you about the following:
- We are still hopeful that Clinic & CareSource will reach an agreement before September 1st. Both parties have expressed hope that they will come to an agreement. CareSource was legally obligated to send out those letters to their members, but it does not mean that this is final.
- Open enrollment is NOW OPEN
open in Novemberwhere you can change to another MCP. There are other plans which the Clinic will take. Call 800 324 8680 ext. 4 to switch. See the ratings for Medicaid Providers here.
- Anyone who is in a course of treatment at the Clinic like chemotherapy (see letter below for more details and examples) will be able to continue to receive care at the Clinic for another 90 days after the contract ends.
- If you decide you want to change MCPs not during open enrollment you may be able to change your MCP as long as Medicaid agrees you have just cause.
