TO ALL HIV Care Coordination Participants in Indiana:
If you have not done so yet, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT you contact your HIV Care Coordinator to find out what you need to do to be ready for January 31, 2014 when ICHIA stops operating. IF you have MEDICARE and ICHIA only, you will need to apply for Medicare Part C (which is Medicare A/B and D). ENROLLEMENT ENDS for Medicare PART C on December 7, 2014.
IF you have ICHIA and ANY OTHER PROGRAM, it will depend on your particular situation as to what you MUST DO to ensure coverage. Make sure you have contacted your HIV Care Coordinator BEFORE December 31, 2014 to ensure your NEW programs (whichever will apply to you - your care coordinator will walk you through your particular situation) are in place and operational by January 31, 2014, when ICHIA will cease coverage (originally ICHIA was to cease on December 31, 2013, but extended coverage one month to give HIV Care Coordiantion clients time to get enrolled in their new program(s)).
