IMPORTANT: Molina HealthCare of Illinois MMAI coverage will end on 05/01/2017
This Molina Action affects Macon and Piatt Counties beginning May 1, 2017
Molina HealthCare of Illinois MMAI will no longer provide coverage through the Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative (MMAI) program after April 30, 2017. However, you will still have Medicare and Medicaid benefits, including prescription drugs. You will be automatically enrolled in the regular Medicaid fee-for-service program. Unless you make another choice, you will be automatically enrolled in the Original Medicare fee-forservice program and a SilverScript Insurance Company Medicare Part D prescription drug plan effective May 1, 2017. If you do not want to be automatically enrolled in Medicare coverage, you have options, which are listed below.
What are my options?
1. Original Medicare and a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan
You can get your Medicare services, such as doctor visits, through Original Medicare. If you choose Original Medicare, you need to join a separate Medicare prescription drug plan, also known as a “Part D plan” to get prescription drug coverage. If you don’t choose a drug plan on your own, Medicare will enroll you in a SilverScript Insurance
Company Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.
2. Medicare Advantage
You can enroll in a Medicare Advantage health plan to get your Medicare services. A Medicare Advantage plan is offered by a private company that works with Medicare to provide benefits. Medicare Advantage plans cover all services that Original Medicare covers and may offer extra coverage such as vision, hearing, or dental. Most include prescription drug coverage as well. If you choose a Medicare Advantage plan, check with your current providers to see if they are part of the new plan. You should also ask the new plan to see if your current medications will be covered. You can call the new plan or look at the plan’s provider directory and prescription drug list online.

No matter what choice you make, you will still have Medicare and Medicaid benefits, including prescription drugs.
