How to ask for a medical coverage or request an appeal for service.

Plan ahead for peace of mind.

Sometimes a serious illness or injury can leave a patient unable to communicate, and families have the burden of making difficult decisions without knowing what their loved one really wants. An advance care plan lets you make your medical wishes known ahead of time.

If you have low income and few resources, you may qualify for up to $4,000 in subsidies to apply toward your Medicare payments. Subsidy amounts vary. See if you qualify for Extra Help with these resources.

As a Medicare member, you have the right to:

  • Ask for coverage of a medical service or prescription drug. In some cases, we may allow exceptions for a service or drug that is normally not covered.
  • File an appeal if your request is denied. An appeal is a formal way of asking us to review and change a coverage decision we made.

You can submit your request for medical service coverage or appeal to the following:

Mail:

Baylor Scott & White Health Plan
1206 W. Campus Drive
Temple, TX 76502

Fax:

800.626.3042

Phone:

866.334.3141 (TTY: 711)

You can submit a request for Part D drug coverage or redetermination (appeal). Visit Drug Requests - Prior Authorizations, Exceptions and Appeals for more details

Addressing your concerns and resolving them promptly is important to us, because it's important to you. As a member of Baylor Scott & White Health Plan (BSWHP), you have the right to request an appeal and file a grievance.

Appeal

An appeal is a request for reconsideration of our determination on a service, supply or drug you have received or requested. You may file an appeal when you believe that the services or supplies should be covered or that they should be covered differently than Baylor Scott & White Health Plan approved or paid them. Your doctor can also request an appeal for you.

Grievance

A grievance is a complaint that does not involve a coverage determination. For example, grievances may be filed if you are unhappy with the quality of care or service you receive from us or from our Baylor Scott & White Health Plan network providers. You also have the right to file a grievance if you have any type of problem with us or one of our network pharmacies that does not involve coverage for a prescription drug.

We encourage your input and will not discriminate against you, refuse coverage or engage in any other retaliation if you choose to file a complaint or request an appeal of a decision.

Additionally, we're prohibited from retaliating against a physician or provider who has filed a complaint against us on your behalf. You may also refer to your Evidence of Coverage for complaint examples and complete details.

For status or process questions or to obtain an aggregate number of grievances and appeals, please call Customer Service at 866.344.3141, 7 AM to 8 PM daily; or write:

Baylor Scott & White Health Plan
1206 W. Campus Drive
Temple, TX 76502
Fax: 800.626.3042

You can also submit an appeal and grievance to Medicare:

Voluntary disenrollment

If you are considering disenrollment, please call our Member Advocacy Department at 866.334.3141 (TTY: 711). We want to help you in any way we can. Our Member Advocates can help you resolve problems before you make the final decision to change health plans.

Medicare gives you two ways you can disenroll from a Medicare Advantage plan:

  • Annual Election Period (AEP), Oct. 15-Dec. 7
  • Special Election Period (SEP)

If your situation includes the following, you can enter a Special Enrollment Period:

  • You move outside our service area, or have experienced another change in circumstances — as determined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) — that causes you to no longer be enrolled in a BSW SeniorCare plan
  • You're entitled to Medicare Part A and Part B and receive any type of assistance from the Title XIX (Medicaid) program
  • CMS or the organization has terminated our contract in the area in which you reside, or the organization has notified you of the impending termination or discontinuation of the plan in the area you reside
  • You demonstrate that we have substantially violated a material provision of our contract with CMS in relation to you, or we (or an agent) materially misrepresented the plan when marketing our plans
  • You weren't adequately informed of the creditable status of drug coverage provided by an entity required to give such notice, or a loss of creditable coverage. CMS determines eligibility for this on a case by case basis
  • Your enrollment or non-enrollment is erroneous due to an action, inaction or error by a federal employee
  • You meet such other exceptional conditions as CMS may provide

Ways to disenroll during AEP, MADP or valid Special Enrollment Period:

  • Call us at 866.334.3141 (TTY: 711)
  • Call 800.MEDICARE
  • Deliver, mail or fax a signed and dated written notice to the plan
  • Enroll in another plan during a valid enrollment period, which will prompt disenrollment in your current plan. Use your current plan until disenrollment is effective

Involuntary disenrollment

We may disenroll you if:

  • Premiums are not paid on a timely basis
  • You engage in disruptive behavior
  • You provide fraudulent information on an enrollment request
  • You permit abuse of an enrollment card

If we choose to terminate your coverage for any of these reasons, we'll send you notice of the upcoming disenrollment. This notice will:

  • Advise you we plan to disenroll you, and why such action is occurring
  • Provide the effective date of termination
  • Include an explanation of your right to a hearing under our grievance procedures

Required involuntary disenrollment

We are required to disenroll you if:

  • A permanent change in residence makes you ineligible to be an enrollee of our advantage plans
  • You lose entitlement to Medicare
  • We are notified of your passing
  • Our contract is terminated, or we discontinue offering a Prescription Drug Plan in the area where it had previously been available*
  • You materially misrepresent information to us regarding reimbursement for third-party coverage

*Authorized by law to refuse to renew its contract with CMS. In addition, CMS also may refuse to renew the contract, and that termination or non-renewal may result in termination of your enrollment.

Forms

Pharmacy and Drugs

  • *The Pharmacy Search Tool can be used to locate additional in-network pharmacies.
  • **The Pharmacy Directory is for Central and North Texas. There are more pharmacies where your prescriptions may be covered by our Plan.

What is the Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program?

It is a program for Medicare Part D members to learn more about their medicines. This helps ensure safe use of medications.

Who is eligible?

If you have Medicare Part D coverage with Baylor Scott & White Health Plan, you must meet ONE of the following criteria to be eligible for MTM Services:

  1. Meet ALL of the following criteria:
    A. Have at least 3 of the chronic diseases listed below.
    • Alzheimer's Disease
    • Osteoporosis
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Chronic Heart Failure (CHF)
    • Diabetes
    • Dyslipidemia (high cholesterol)
    • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
    • Bipolar Disorder
    • Depression
    • Schizophrenia
    • Asthma
    • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
    B. Take at least 8 chronic / maintenance medications covered by your Medicare Part D plan.
    C. Be likely to spend a certain amount on Part D covered drugs each year. For 2022, you must be likely to spend $4,696.

    - OR -
  2. Are an at-risk beneficiary (ARB) in a Drug Management Program (DMP)

Is there a fee for MTM services?

There is no fee for MTM services if you meet the above criteria.

Who provides the MTM services?

A company called Clinical Support Services, Inc. (CSS) provides the MTM services. CSS has specially trained MTM providers.

What types of MTM services are offered?

  1. A Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) once per year
    • A CMR can help you learn more about your medications. This includes over the counter (OTC) products and supplements.
    • During a CMR, a qualified MTM provider talks with you and reviews your medications. The MTM provider works with you to create a plan to address any medication problems.
    • After a CMR, you will be provided a written summary. That summary will be delivered by mail and will include the following materials:
      • Cover Letter (CL)
      • Recommended To-Do List (TDL)
      • Personal Medication List (PML)
    • Where are CMR visits conducted?
      • Over the phone
    • How long is a CMR visit?
      • The time required to conduct a CMR depends on many factors. Typically, a CMR takes less than 15 min.
  2. Targeted Medication Reviews (TMR) every 3 months
    • These reviews help to ensure safe use of medications. These reviews may focus on one drug or many drugs.
    • Your medications will be reviewed to see if you may be taking the targeted medication(s). If a medication problem is found during the review, your doctor will be notified. Often, this is in the form of a letter.

How do patients enroll?

MTM services are not a benefit for all Part D members, but are offered for free to members who qualify for the plan's MTM program.

Once you are eligible for the MTM program, you are automatically enrolled.

You will be sent a welcome letter inviting you to take part in a CMR. The letter will describe the MTM program and describe how to schedule a CMR. You may also get a phone call inviting you to schedule a CMR.

You may disenroll from the MTM program at any time. You may also refuse certain services and still stay enrolled in the MTM program. For example, you can refuse to schedule a CMR but stay in the MTM program. In this case, your medications would still be screened during the TMRs.

More information

To learn more about the MTM program or to see if you are eligible for the program, call Clinical Support Services, Inc. (CSS) at 855.428.5738 8 AM to 5 PM CST.

If you do not have questions about the MTM program but have questions regarding your Medicare benefit, contact BSWHP at 866.334.3141 7 AM to 8 PM CST daily. TTY/TDD users should call 800.735.2989.

Personal Medication List

It is important to keep a list of your medications. Feel free to print and use the medication list templates below. If you take OTC medications or supplements, include these on your list too. Be sure to share your medication list with each of your healthcare providers.

What is Quality Assurance?

This is a sign of our dedication to providing quality healthcare. Quality assurance includes measures and systems to reduce medication errors and adverse drug interactions and improve medication use.

Examples of quality assurance processes in relation to Medicare Part D may include the following:

Concurrent Drug Utilization Review

This occurs when a prescription is being filled at the pharmacy. Your prescriptions are reviewed for safety issues that may address the following:

  • Possible medication errors
  • Drug dosage and therapy duration errors
  • Duplicate drugs that are unnecessary because you are taking another to treat the same medical condition
  • Drug allergies
  • Possible harmful interactions between the drugs you are taking
  • Drugs that are not appropriate for your age or gender

Retrospective Drug Utilization Review

This occurs after a prescription is filled. This process reviews members' drug histories and identifies opportunities to improve the quality of care by identifying patterns of inappropriate or medically unnecessary therapy.

What Is Drug Utilization Management?

Drug utilization management programs are designed to improve quality and reduce costs when medically appropriate. The program includes systems to assist in preventing overuse and underuse of prescribed medications.

Examples of utilization management in relation to Medicare Part D may include the following:

Prior Authorizations & Exceptions

We require you to get prior authorization for certain drugs on formulary. This means you will need to get approval from our Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM), OptumRx, before you fill prescriptions for these drugs. If you do not get approval, Baylor Scott & White Health Plan may not cover the drug. Additionally, to request coverage for a drug not listed on formulary, an exception request must be submitted to the PBM.

Quantity Limits

For certain drugs, there are limits to the amount of the drug that we will cover. For example, we provide up to a certain number of tablets per prescription for a certain drug.

Step Therapy

In some cases, we require you to first try certain drugs to treat your medical condition before we will cover another drug for that condition. For example, if Drug A and Drug B both treat your medical condition, Baylor Scott & White Health Plan may not cover Drug B unless you try Drug A first. If Drug A does not work for you, Baylor Scott & White Health Plan will then cover Drug B.

Use of Generic Drugs

We cover both name brand and generic drugs. A generic drug has the same active ingredient as the name brand drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than name brand drugs and are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

As a new or continuing member, you might be taking drugs that are not on our formulary or taking a drug that requires you to meet certain requirements, like preauthorization, step therapy or quantity limits.

If you're in the first 90 days of coverage for this plan year, we'll cover a temporary 30-day supply of your drug at any in-network pharmacy to give you time for you and your doctor to plan your future treatment. If you're at a long-term care facility, we will cover a temporary 31-day supply of your drug at any in-network pharmacy.

Talk to your doctor about whether you should switch to a drug on our formulary or request an exception to see if we can cover the drug you're taking. You can view our full Medicare Part D Transition Policy to learn more. If you need assistance requesting an exception or have questions about the transition process, contact us.
