DuPage Medical Group is excited to welcome Northwest Health Care Associates to our growing healthcare family.
How will this change affect your insurance coverage? If your insurance plan is not listed in our Participating Health Plans, effective September 1, 2017 we will no longer be an in-network provider. As a result, you will need to either (1) select another physician who is in-network with your plan, (2) change your insurance plan to one of those listed on the attached, or (3) utilize your out-of-network benefits in receiving care from us. If you are insured through your employer and want to change your insurance plan, check with your Human Resources department to understand coverage for continuation of benefits, along with timing of your next open enrollment period. This is the time when you may be able to switch to another health insurance plan. If you are in a PPO or POS plan and cannot switch your coverage at this time, you might consider using your out-of-network benefits. This may be a temporary solution until you are able to switch to another plan.
We hope this information will help you to understand what options are available to you so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.
