Provider Update: The Receiver has filed a petition with the Court that may affect your rights. Among other things, Petition No. 7-Petition for Order Approving Liquidation Plan addresses claims procedures and statutory priorities and also includes a request for entry of a temporary restraining order that prohibits providers of medical services from recovering balances that might be due from patients who were enrollees in Meritus unless and until an EOB-Explanation of Benefits form has been issued by the Receiver. The Court will hold a hearing on Petition No. 7 on March 8, 2017 at 8:45 am in the Arizona Superior Court in Maricopa County.
