This communication is to remind our providers of the activities and important
milestones that have been discussed over the past few weeks concerning
the launch of the Mary Washington Medicare Advantage Plan (MWMA). October 1st is fast approaching, and we want to ensure that all MWMA Providers are
aware of the important activities that will occur in October.
Multiple Affiliation Letters will be sent to your patients, with the initial
letter arriving in early October, making them aware of your participation
in the MWMA Plan. As previously discussed, your names, logos, and addresses
will appear on the letter. We have also included a “Talking Medicare,”
reference sheet in case your patients ask you questions:
- You can refer them to the enrollment brochure and materials in your office.
- You may converse with the patient using the, “Talking Medicare
Dos and Don’ts.”
- If you have urgent questions feel free to contact us by email or phone:
Chris Skowronek (919-485-9290) or Yolanda Robinson (636-686-9557).
Experienced and vetted, Medicare Insurance Agents, have been selected to
support our practices. If you have not yet been able to meet them, they
are available for individual meetings. Please contact Tim Hicks (firstname.lastname@example.org) MWMA Broker Sales Manager, to schedule a meeting.
Enrollment and Marketing Materials will be distributed to your offices
starting October 1st. Materials will be delivered by MWMA staff, select insurance agents, and
MWHC staff. Chris Skowronek (email@example.com), MWMA VP, Health Plan Operations, Yolanda Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org), MWMA Population Health Manager and Tim Hicks (email@example.com), MWMA Broker Sales Manager will be available to answer any questions
you or your staff might have.
The MWMA Provider Directory, which includes all participating plan providers,
and Plan Benefit Designs will be available October 1st, and accessible on the MWMA Provider Portal (provider.mwmaplan.com),
We are excited about the launch and optimistic about the reception from
beneficiaries and the community. Our success relies heavily on your support
and the support of your office staff, so thank you in advance. Please
don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us with questions or requests.
