JGS Insurance Alert - An Exciting Change is Coming to Your Health Plan

22 March 2019 By Barry E. Fields

If your medical program is currently provided by Affiliated Physicians/Concord Management (aka QualCare), you may have received the notification below that the plan administrator and the provider network is transitioning from QualCare (in NJ) and Cigna (outside NJ) to Aetna for all covered employees.  The transition will occur on different dates based on your renewal date – upcoming July renewals will transition to Aetna AND renew in October – October renewals will transition to Aetna in October – January renewals will transition in January – but April, 2020 renewals will transition to Aetna in January, 2020 while renewing in April, 2020.  Fortunately, there is a lot of overlap between all of the large networks, but there will be some participants whose provider is not participating while there will be people who are happy about the change.

 If you ARE NOT currently with Affiliated Physicians/Concord Management (QualCare), they are certainly a viable medical program to consider – especially if you are currently covered by Aetna since the carrier change would not require any change in your provider network.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
