Important Information for AvMed Medicare Preferred Members
Some Medical Providers have chosen not to be Medicare Participating providers at regular Medicare rates. These providers are called "Opt Out" providers and can't bill Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan for any service or supplies given to you and all his/her other Medicare patients for at least 2 years. You can enter into a private contract with an "Opt Out" provider if you wish, however, there are no limits on what you can be charged for services under a private contract. You must pay the full amount of the bill unless the services are for emergent or urgent care.
"Opt Out" providers are not participating Medicare providers with AvMed Health Plans. However, because AvMed Medicare Preferred Members may utilize non-participating providers for certain services, there is a risk that you will be financially responsible for services rendered by "Opt Out" providers.
Before seeing a non-participating provider for services other than emergency or urgent care, it is important to make sure that provider has not "Opted Out" of Medicare. If the provider has "Opted Out", you will be responsible for 100% of charges. AvMed and regular Medicare will not make payment to an "Opt Out" provider unless it is urgent or emergency care.
The best way to determine a provider's "Opt Out" status is to ask them directly. Click here to obtain the list of "Opt Out" providers in Florida.
