Meritus Health Partners and Meritus Mutual Health Partners were placed into receivership by the Maricopa County Superior Court on August 10, 2016. Leslie Hess, Interim Director of the Arizona Department of Insurance, has been appointed as Receiver by the Court.
All required premiums, deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance payments must be paid in full. Once the member’s coverage terminated, the member became fully responsible for the cost of health services that they received after the termination date.
What does the Receivership mean for providers?
Providers with unpaid claims for services that were covered under Meritus Health Partners insurance policies will need to participate in the statutory proof of claims process. Additional information on the proof of claims and the claims bar deadline will be made available by the Receiver in the future.
Providers should continue to submit claims in the ordinary course of business.
