After we have inquired with management about stopping our health plan coverage and then restarting it at a future date, we were told that it is not possible.
With our limited funds we believe that stopping our coverage while our members are topped up with their prescription medication at this point will be the most cost effective measure we can employ at this time.
We are actively exploring options with different health plan providers on coverage that they can provide for us that will match the plan we are currently under.
Once a provider is found, purchasing the coverage at the time when our members are at the point that their prescription medication is running out is the most responsible action we can take moving forward.
Members should ensure that they should go see their doctor and make sure they topped up to the maximum amount of medication before Saturday May 30 when our current coverage will expire.
