South Country Central School District

 and Catamaran

Suffolk School Employees health Plan (SSEHP) is pleased to inform you of a change to their Prescription Drug provider. Effective March 1, 2014, they will change administration of its Medicare Part D prescription benefits from Opium Rx to Catamaran for all members. Members who are eligible for Medicare will continue to have a prescription drug benefit through the SSHEP Medicare Prescription Drug Plan which will be administered by Catamaran.

No action is required on your part. This transition should be seamless to you.

Catamaran is the fourth-largest prescription benefits manager in the U.S. and provides services to 25 million individuals across the country. We are well known for helping plan members get maximum value from their pharmacy benefits.

As a Medicare beneficiary, there are several federally mandated notices your health plan must provide to you over the coming weeks. Again, no action is required on your part, but we wanted to let you know you will receive several notices by March 1, 2014. These include:

A letter allowing you to opt out of the SSEHP Medicare Prescription Drug Program (required federal notice)

A welcome packet from Catamaran, which will include an Evidence of Coverage (required federal notice) and other important plan materials.

New cards will be mailed to you before February 28, 2014. It is very important to present your new ID card when filling any prescriptions on or after March 1, 2014. Once you receive your new ID cards, our member service team will be ready to assist you with any questions about your prescription benefit.

If you have any questions prior to March 1, please contact your District Benefit Coordinator. After March 1, you can contact SSHEP member services toll-free at 1-855-253-3270. Representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
