Your Benefits during Emergency Situations

In the event of a disaster, catastrophic event, federal, state or local emergency declaration, MCC of AZ (HMO SNP) will continue to provide needed services to members. We will abide by all required timeframes and responsibilities as required by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS) and/or other regulatory agencies.

The actions we take include:

  • Coverage of both Medicare Parts A and B services and supplemental Part C plan benefits at non-network hospitals and other medical facilities
  • Removing prescription drug limitations, such as “refill too soon” rejection notices
  • Continued care through your MCC of AZ (HMO SNP) Care Coordinator

All these changes become effective immediately and will remain in place until:

  • The President, Governor or Secretary of Health and Human Services declares the public health emergency or disaster has ended; or,
  • 30 days have passed since the disaster or emergency was declared, and no end date was specified

In the event MCC of AZ (HMO SNP) is also affected by the disaster and cannot resume operations by the end of the disaster or public health emergency, we will notify the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) along with the State of Arizona Department of Health. We will update the MCC of AZ (HMO SNP) website, when and if we are able, to provide information about our operational capabilities.

Immediately report them to our Member Services department at 1-800-424-4509 (TTY 711). We want to protect your health and your identity.
