In a recent post regarding a change in our DMS contracts related to ensuring members’ addresses are correct, three key facts about were missing:
- Once a member is flagged as having a “bad” address – either because they no longer live in the same place or because the Postal Service has issues delivering their mail – we (Passport) have at least 30 days to remedy the situation.
- If a member’s mail is returned and their address isn’t updated in time, they will be dis-enrolled from Passport (and lose all of their Passport-specific benefits), but they will NOT lose their overall Medicaid eligibility. They will remain eligible for Kentucky Medicaid, and will be in the fee-for-service (FFS) category until their address is updated.
- This change is ultimately a good thing for all of our members and providers, as it will ensure that our members are getting the best care possible.
