Please confirm that you want to join a FIDA plan.

Dear [MemberName; B-3]:                                 [MedicaidCIN; B-16]

We got your application to join a FIDA plan. Before we process your application, we need you to confirm that you want to join the plan.

We learned from Medicare that you get your medicines through your employer/union health insurance.

If you join FIDA, you, your spouse, and your other dependents could lose this and other benefits.

Please contact the benefits administrator at your former employer or union and tell them that:

  • You are thinking about joining a FIDA plan
  • The FIDA plan will provide both your Medicare and Medicaid benefits
  • The FIDA plan will cover your medicines (and serve as your Medicare prescription drug plan)

Ask the benefits administrator what will happen to your current healthcare benefits if you join a FIDA Plan.

Call New York Medicaid Choice at the phone number on the last page of this letter to say if you still want to join a FIDA plan. If we do not hear from you by [ResponseDate; A-16], New York Medicaid Choice will not process your application.

If you need help understanding this letter or if you have questions about your rights, please call the ombudsman office through the Independent Consumer Advocacy Network (ICAN) at the phone number on the last page of this letter.

Thank you,
New York Medicaid Choice
