Coordination of Benefits Communication (Sent 3/20/17)
Good afternoon agents,
Sanford Health Plan has recently issued a request for information by mail to all individual (family policies), and group members upon their renewal. The mailing is in regards to the coordination of benefits process. The language in the certificate of insurance states that when a member is covered by another health insurance plan, the plans must coordinate and share the cost of the member’s care.
In order to have the most updated and accurate information in our system, Sanford Health Plan is sending out this form to the policyholders described above. The purpose of the form is to find out if the policyholder has other coverage.
- Policyholder with other coverage: policyholder checks a box, signs and returns the form.
- Policyholder without other coverage: policyholder completes the form, signs and returns the form.
Important Note: Future claims will not be processed if this form is not received.
We will also be enclosing a flyer in the mailing explaining the definition and purpose of “coordination of benefits”. For your reference, here is a copy of the flyer.
If you have questions about this process, please contact our team at GPB.
Have a great day,
Great Plains Brokerage, a Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC Company
