Care1st Health Plan is authorized by law to refuse to renew its contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS may also refuse to renew its contract with Care1st. If the contract between Care1st and CMS is not renewed or is terminated, this may result in the termination of your enrollment in the Care1st Cal MediConnect Plan (Medicare-Medicaid Plan).
In addition, Care1st Cal MediConnect Plan may reduce its service area and have the right to no longer offer services in the area where the beneficiary resides. If this occurs, you will receive another notice and instructions for continuity of care.
