OUR PLAN IS NOT CHANGING!
THE ONLY THING CHANGING IS THE ADMINISTRATOR WHO PAYS THE CLAIMS ON THE MTABF's BEHALF.
Please do not submit any claims to Preferred or ASO during the July 15 -August 15 blackout period. After all data is transferred to ASO from Preferred, approximately by 8.15.23, claims can be submitted to ASO.
The blackout period DOES NOT mean you can't visit providers (i.e. dentists, vision, etc.) You CAN!
You & your providers just need to wait until August 15th to submit claims. If a provider is telling you something different or refusing you service, they do not understand how this transition works.
An alternative option to providers denying you service because they don't understand the change over process (although it has been explained to them), is for you to pay for the service & submit the claim to ASO in August. You will receive the same reimbursement as you always would.
