On Nov. 16, 2015, Mcare mailed to physicians and medical practices notice letters with information about assessment refunds for their Mcare coverage.
Be sure to retain your notice letter. You will need information in that letter to take next steps described below and to verify that any refunds for your coverage have been correctly paid. You will also need this information if you have to contact Mcare about the refunds for your coverage.
Payment of refunds If any refunds are payable to you, you can expect your check in the first quarter of 2016, unless you have one or more claimed refunds and you fail to make payment choices for all of your claimed refunds on the Mcare Choice website by Dec. 30, 2015.
Failure to make payment choices for all claimed refunds by that cut-off date will delay your payment until the second quarter of 2016 when Mcare makes the final round of payments. This payment delay will apply to all of your refunds, including those that will be automatically paid to you because they have been neither claimed nor assigned.
