Care Select

Families throughout the state should be receiving information letters about Care Select in the upcoming days. Please read the information carefully. All affected individuals will need to call the enrollment broker (1-866-963-7383).

· You should ask if your preferred primary care physician is enrolled with Care Select.

· If they are, you will need to simply select that provider. (this is true even if you have private insurance)

· If they are not you can share who that physician is and ask that MD Wise and Advantage try to enroll that doctor. (also true for everyone with and without private insurance)

Calling soon will allow time for Advantage and/or MD Wise to try to enroll your current doctor.

If your doctor chooses not to enroll you may need to select a new doctor, (calling early will give you time to research who will be a good fit for you).

· Individuals who have private insurance in addition to Medicaid may be able to keep their primary care physician even if that doctor does not enroll in Care Select. The particulars of that option are still be worked out at the state level. If this applies to you—ask to speak to a supervisor when you call the enrollment broker.

· Individuals who do not call the enrollment broker will be auto assigned to a doctor. Auto assignment is planned to take place on February 15 for individuals in the central region who do not have a waiver, and June 1 for the remainder of the state.
