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 UHC 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: UHC members will receive continued health care coverage from 12:01 a.m. on April 1, 2013, through arrangements made by CMS, AHCA and Elder Affairs. The Florida Department of Financial Services, as Receiver of UHC, is working with CMS, AHCA and Elder Affairs to assist in their efforts to provide a smooth transition for UHC’s members to other health care coverage beginning on April 1, 2013.
UHC members are urged to carefully read any letters they receive from the Receiver, CMS, AHCA, or Elder Affairs. 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/Medicaid options.
Please Note: UHC has an affiliated health insurance company – Universal Health Care Insurance Company (UHCIC) – which has been ordered into a separate receivership. Please visit the Receiver's UHCIC website for more details.
Please Also Note: The Texas and Nevada based HMOs owned by UHC’s parent organization, Universal Health Care Group, are ongoing entities and are NOT part of these receivership proceedings.
