Guidelines Update for April 2016
April 15, 2016
We’ve made some changes to our Health Care Sharing Member Guidelines as of April 1, 2016:
- FAQ #32: We have enabled COBRA continuation of the Health Care Sharing program when a member terminates employment AND elects to maintain their former-employer’s MEC plan.
- FAQ #9: We have updated the process for handling medical needs, re-emphasizing the importance of Members presenting themselves as “self-pay” patients to medical providers when discussing payment.
- Section 8.B.2. Members must receive written authorization from Sedera before Alternative Medical Practices will be considered shareable with the Sedera community.
- Section 8.B.19. A long term care limitation of 90 days per need has been implemented for members requiring Long-Term Care or Skilled Nursing.
