Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, we are offering three Medicare Advantage plans (H7404-001-000, H7404-002-000 and H7404-014-000) in the Twin Cities market. They offer lower copays for members who choose certain practices committed to delivering high-quality care. These health care professionals are referred to as Tier 1 providers.
Members enrolled in these preferred provider organization (PPO) plans have the flexibility to seek covered services both inside and outside of the contracted network. These members may seek care at your facility. The member card shows two copay amounts in the PCP and Specialist areas. Tier 1 providers will collect the first amount or lower amount, and Tier 2 providers will collect the second amount listed. Please see the example card below.
ACTION REQUESTED: Please share this information with your front desk staff. It will help them determine whether they should collect Tier 1 or Tier 2 copays. Members will receive their member card with the following message included. The included provider list is NOT an exclusive list. Members may use the Provider Look-Up tool at MyAARPMedicare.com to find providers in our network.
Examples of Tier 1 providers are:
