Later today, qualifying agents will receive a contracting request via email from WellCare_MissouriContracting@wellcare.com. The email will include a customized eContract that will require the review and signature for two contracts – Missouri Care, Inc. (HMO D-SNP) which will be divested to Anthem and WellCare of Missouri Health Insurance Company, Inc. (PPO). These contracts will be stored within the agents file at WellCare and provided to the respective companies.
Please download the Missouri Care and WellCare of Nebraska Divestiture FAQ for further details, and be on the lookout for the eContract.
We will continue to provide updates.
