NOTICE FOR STAYWELL / SUNSHINE / WELLCARE / AMBETTER MEMBERS
Staywell/Sunshine/Wellcare/Ambetter Health Plan Members
Your health is important to us, and we want to make you aware of a change that may affect you. We were informed by Centene on August 27 that they decided to terminate negotiations and Weems contracts for the above health plans.
What this means for you:
If you do not change plans, then you will need to seek non-emergency care through another provider after our termination dates, for Sunshine/Ambetter – 8/30/2021 and Wellcare/Staywell – 8/31/2021. The Sunshine/Ambetter hospital services contract will terminate 11/30/2021.
Patients currently receiving services as of the termination date may qualify for “continuity of care” and your coverage would continue. Check with your plan at the number on your card.
If you want to keep receiving care from Weems Medical Centers, you will need to inquire about changing to other plans as your provider is no longer in your plan’s network.
Plans we currently participate with include:
|Capital Health Plan||(877) 247-6512|
|Florida Blue||(800) 352-2583|
|United Healthcare||(866) 414-1959|
|Simply Healthcare||(844) 405-4298|

We regret the inconvenience this may cause patients.
