Due to Coronavirus in the United States HHS Secretary Alex M. Azar declared a Public Health Emergency.

Your health and safety are our primary concerns and if you leave your home to avoid this emergency, we do not want any undue barriers to keep you from getting your medication or to seeing a medical professional.  

For our members, we have removed the refill too soon edits for your Part D Prescription Drugs, and removed the out-of-network authorization requirements for out-of-network providers.  You must still use Medicare certified facilities and providers.

Prior authorization for medical services or medication may still be needed for medical necessity. This change is in effect until the emergency notice is closed or April 27, 2020 whichever is earlier.

All together now.

In Ohio, WellCare and Buckeye Health Plan have merged to form a premier healthcare organization focused on government-sponsored programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and the Health Insurance Marketplace.

We’re excited about what this will mean in the future for the communities we serve, our partners and, most importantly – what it will mean for YOU, our member.

Right now, however, nothing is changing.

As a Buckeye Health Plan member, you can continue to use your benefits and see your doctors just as you always have. Your current Member ID card is still your key to your best possible health.

As time goes by and we develop new products, services or networks, we will be sure to keep you informed so you gain full advantage of our newly-formed, combined organization.
