Read this important information before you sign the form.
If I Join the Medi-Cal KP Cal, LLC (Kaiser Permanente):
I understand that Kaiser requires binding arbitration
for my Medi-Cal benets. This means that I give up my
right to a jury or court trial for medical malpractice
and other disagreements about benets and services.
Instead, I would help choose independent professionals
who would make a decision about the problem. I can
still ask for a Medi-Cal State Hearing.
By completing this enrollment application for a
Cal MediConnect plan or by allowing the State to
enroll me in a Cal MediConnect plan, I agree to the
Cal MediConnect plans are Medicare-Medicaid plans
that have a contract with the State of California and
the Federal government. I will need to keep my
Medicare Parts A and B and Medi-Cal. I can be in only
one Medicare plan at a time, and I understand that my
enrollment in the plan selected will automatically end
my enrollment in any other Medicare health plan or
Medicare prescription drug plan.
I understand that prescription drugs are covered,
but not always the same ones I’m already taking.
I understand that I’ll be able to receive at least one
30-day supply of the prescription drugs I currently take
anytime during the rst 90 days of coverage in a
Cal MediConnect Plan. I understand that I may be able
to continue seeing the doctors I go to now for a period
up to six (6) months for Medicare services and a period
of up to twelve (12) months for Medi-Cal services from
the eective date of enrollment in a Cal MediConnect
Plan. I must contact the Cal MediConnect Plan for
information on how to do this. I further understand
that the Cal MediConnect Plan has providers and
pharmacies that I must use to get health care services,
except for non-routine, emergency situations.
Cal MediConnect plans serve a specic service area.
If I move out of the area covered by the plan chosen,
I need to notify the plan so I can disenroll and nd a
new plan in my new area.
I understand that beginning on the date my Cal
MediConnect coverage begins, I must get all of my
health care from my new plan, except for emergency
or urgently needed services or out-of-area dialysis
services. Services authorized by my Cal MediConnect
plan and other services contained in my plan's
Evidence of Coverage document will be covered.
Without authorization, NEITHER Medicare, Medi-Cal
NOR my Cal MediConnect plan WILL PAY FOR THE
Release of Information: By joining this Medicare
and Medicaid plan, I acknowledge that the plan I
selected will release my information to Medicare and
other plans as is necessary for treatment, payment
and health care operations. I also acknowledge that
my Cal MediConnect plan will release my information,
including my prescription drug event data, to Medicare,
who may release it for research and other purposes
which follow all applicable Federal statutes and
regulations. The information on this enrollment form is
correct to the best of my knowledge. I understand that
if I intentionally provide false information on this form,
I will be disenrolled from the plan.
I understand that my signature (or the signature of
the person authorized to act on my behalf under the
laws of California on this application) means that I've
read and understand the contents of this application.
If signed by an authorized individual, this signature
certies: 1) this person is authorized under State law to
complete this enrollment and 2) documentation of this
authority is available upon request from Medicare.
