A special Medicaid information meeting for health care providers, originally planned for Port Angeles, will be held at 2 p.m. today, March 30, at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
In the past, managed care-eligible Medicaid clients in Clallam County have been able to enroll with two health plans — Molina Healthcare of Washington and Regence Healthcare — but they could choose to remain covered by regular fee-for-service Medicaid instead.
Now the two health plans have contracted with enough local providers that they have capacity for all clients eligible for managed care. Except for American Indian/Alaska natives, all eligible nonenrolled clients will need to select one of the two plans by Oct. 1.
Additional information will be available for Medicaid clients in the coming months. For now, e-mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
