Potential for Contract Termination Notice

Simply Healthcare is required to notify beneficiaries that it is authorized by law to refuse to renew its contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), that CMS also may refuse to renew the contract, and that termination or non-renewal may result in termination of your enrollment. In addition, the plan may reduce its service area and no longer offer services in the area where you reside. In the event this happens, you will receive advance notice.

Getting Care during a Disaster 

In the event of a Presidential or Gubernatorial emergency or major disaster declaration or an announcement of a public health emergency by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, your plan will make the following exceptions to assure adequate care during the emergency:

  • Approve services to be furnished at specified non-contracted facilities which are considered Medicare-certified facilities;
  • Temporarily reduce cost sharing for plan-approved out-of-network services to the in-network cost-sharing amounts; and
  • Waive in full the requirements for a primary physician referral where applicable. 

Typically, the source that declared the disaster will clarify when the disaster or emergency is over. If, however, the disaster or emergency time frame has not been closed within 30 days from the initial declaration, and, if CMS has not indicated an end to the disaster or emergency, your plan will resume normal operations 30 days from the initial declaration. 

When a disaster or emergency is declared, it is specific to a geographic location (i.e., county). Your plan will apply the above exceptions only if you reside in the geographic location indicated.
