Renewal of Health Plan Notification

NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) continues to send annual plan renewal notices prior to due dates, based on the specific health plan, which can sometimes be confusing to members. In addition, we will begin sending renewal reminders in tandem with the state mailing beginning in the second quarter.  These renewal mailings have been designed to simplify the state communication regarding the annual renewal process. Depending on their specific health plan, members can expect to receive these mailings anywhere from 45 days to 90 days in advance of their renewal due date. 

Any members with questions should continue to call our Customer Care Center at 1-877-626-9298.
