Illinois Client Enrollment Services is responsible for providing unbiased education to clients about their health plan choices and conducting all enrollments into the MMAI program. 

The enrollment broker can assist clients in searching available health plans to determine which plan or plans their PCP participates in.

Web enrollments are not permitted for the MMAI program.  Clients and their families or individuals assisting them should call 1-877-912-8880 to enroll.

 

COMMUNITY MEMBERS

·       Can enroll at any time.  If a voluntary choice is not made within the timeframe provided in the initial enrollment packet, the client will be passively enrolled with the “best fit” health plan and PCP.

·       Can change MMAI plans at any time.  Enrollment in new plan will be effective on a future date.

·       Can opt out at any time.  Client will be disenrolled from the MMAI plan on the first day of the following month.

·       Clients who are already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage or DSNP plan should not be passively enrolled out of their current plan.  However, if a client is enrolled in an MA plan operated by a parent company that also offers an MMAI plan, the client will be moved to the coordinating MMAI plan unless a different, voluntary choice is made.

 

LTSS MEMBERS

·       These members reside in a nursing facility or are receiving waiver services.

·       Mailings to LTSS clients are scheduled to begin in May or June.

·       If a voluntary choice is not made within the timeframe provided in the initial enrollment packet, the client will be passively enrolled with the “best fit” MMAI plan and PCP.

·       Clients may opt out of the demonstration portion of the MMAI program at any time but LTSS clients are required to be enrolled in an MLTSS plan.

·       Client will have 90 days from the effective date of the enrollment to switch to a different MLTSS plan.

·       After 90 days, client will be locked in to their MLTSS plan for 12 months.

·       Clients may switch to a new MLTSS plan during their annual open enrollment period.
