Provider Bulletin regarding transition of Home Care Services
Magnolia Health Plan (Magnolia) is pleased to announce that effective August 1, 2012, we have partnered with Univita Health, Inc. (Univita) to provide home care services (durable medical equipment, home health services, home-based therapies, and home infusion services) for Magnolia members. Magnolia’s decision to partner with Univita is based on an extensive review of their demonstrated record of service excellence in providing these services in several regions of the country.
If you currently are a contracted provider with CareCentrix, Inc. (CareCentrix) for home care services, please continue working with CareCentrix through July 31, 2012 for assistance with all dates of service through July 31, 2012.
During the transition period from March 31, 2012 through July 31, 2012, Magnolia and Univita will be working with you to transition the care of Magnolia members from CareCentrix to Univita. Univita representatives will be contacting you for contracting, education, and assistance purposes during this transition period. We strongly encourage you to contract promptly with Univita, should you choose to do so.
Should you have any questions, you may contact us in the following ways:
