POLICY CANCELLATION EFFECTIVE 12:01 A.M. ON APRIL 1, 2013: By Court Order, effective at 12:01 a.m. on April 1, 2013, all contracts for health care coverage provided by UHCIC that have not already expired are automatically cancelled. Policies or contracts of coverage with normal expiration dates prior to April 1, 2013, or which are terminated by insureds or lawfully cancelled by the Receiver or insured before April 1, 2013, are considered cancelled as of the earlier date.
IMPORTANT: UHCIC Medicare policyholders will receive continued health care coverage from 12:01 a.m. on April 1, 2013, through arrangements made by CMS.
The Florida Department of Financial Services, as Receiver of UHCIC, is working with CMS to assist in its efforts to provide a smooth transition for UHCIC’s members to other health care coverage beginning on April 1, 2013. UHCIC members are urged to carefully read any letters they receive from the Receiver and CMS. These letters will provide members with extremely important information regarding the continuation of their health care coverage from April 1, 2013, including arrangements made for continued prescription drug coverage, as well as explain their other Medicare options.
Please Note: UHCIC has an affiliated HMO – Universal Health Care (UHC) – which has been ordered into a separate receivership. See the Receiver's UHC website for more details.
Please Also Note: The Texas and Nevada based HMOs owned by UHCIC’s parent organization, Universal Health Care Group, are ongoing entities and are NOT part of these receivership proceedings.
