New High Risk Pool to Launch in September
|July 9, 2010||Posted by ITUP under Blog||
Yesterday, MRMIB‘s Deputy Director of Legislative and External Affairs Jeanie Esajian made a few announcements regarding the state’s new high risk pool.
MRMIB submitted two documents to CMS Thursday. The first details how MRMIB will run the new pool. The second is to solicit responses from plans who may want to participate in the pool.
MRMIB will hold a conference for potential vendors on July 12th, and it hopes to get proposals in by July 21st.
Ultimately, the Agency hopes to begin taking patient applications by the end of the summer and sees the new pool up-and-running by September.
