Rights and Responsibilities
Elderplan is proud to have you as a member and looks forward to caring for you long into the future. Each year, however, we are required to provide our members with the following disenrollment notice. If you are pleased with Elderplan and do not wish to make a change, you do not need to take any action.
While we value your membership, enrollment in Elderplan is voluntary. If you require long-term care services and wish to leave Elderplan, you must choose another plan with NY Medicaid Choice to continue to receive your services. In order to receive long-term care services in your home, you must be enrolled in a Managed Long-Term Care plan. You may return to Medicaid Fee-for-Service without long-term care services in your home.
If you feel you no longer need managed long-term care services or wish to enroll in another Managed Long-Term Care Plan, please call Member Services or your Care Management Team. 您的護理經理將為您寄送退保申請的書面確認函。Elderplan will also forward your disenrollment request to the LDSS or NY Medicaid Choice for processing.
There are also reasons, such as you are no longer enrolled in Elderplan for your Medicare coverage, where Elderplan can involuntarily disenroll you or ask you to leave the plan. This could occur by you enrolling in another Medicare plan or by losing your Medicare coverage. For a complete list of these reasons and more information about the involuntary disenrollment process, please refer to your member handbook.
If you choose to disenroll from Elderplan, your effective date of disenrollment will be the last day of the month after LDSS or NY Medicaid Choice has processed your request. However, if your disenrollment is processed after the 20th of the month, your effective date of disenrollment will be the last day of the following month.
From the time of your disenrollment request through your effective date of disenrollment, Elderplan will continue to provide your covered benefits to you. We will also make all necessary referrals for alternative services, no longer covered by Elderplan, after the disenrollment date.
For a complete list of disenrollment reasons and more information about the disenrollment process, please refer to your Member Handbook or go to www.elderplan.org.
Thank you again for choosing Elderplan. If you have any questions or need assistance, please call Member Services at 1-877-891-6447 (TTY 711), 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., 7 days a week.
