If you would like to enroll in one of our Chronic Disease Plans, the plan must confirm your chronic condition. Please complete a pre-qualification assessment tool. Doctors HealthCare Plans, Inc. uses a prequalification assessment tool to ensure you meet the plan’s eligibility requirements. Doctors HealthCare Plans has until the end of the first month of enrollment to confirm that you have the qualifying condition necessary for enrollment into the Chronic Special Needs Plan. If Doctors HealthCare Plans cannot confirm that you have the qualifying condition within that time, we will send you a disenrollment notice the first seven calendar days of the following month (i.e., the second month of enrollment) which is effective at the end of that second month.
Rights and Responsibilities Upon Disenrollment from the Plan
Doctors HealthCare Plans, Inc. will send disenrolled members a letter acknowledging disenrollment within ten (10) calendar days of receipt of the request to disenroll. This letter will include the effective date of disenrollment. Beginning on the effective date of disenrollment, Doctors HealthCare Plans will not cover any health care services received. Disenrolled individuals may obtain health care services through Original Medicare or through their new health care plan if they enrolled in one. Please alert your doctors that you have disenrolled from Doctors HealthCare Plans and provide your new insurance information.
