Alaska 2013 plan extensions

PORTLAND, OR (December 4, 2013) – We are proud to partner with you in finding a way to better health. Part of our commitment to you is to help you navigate changes in Health Care Reform.

Moda Health and Delta Dental of Alaska individual and small group members can extend their 2013 plan through Dec. 31, 2014.

Picking your health plan for the next year is an important decision. To help you, we’ve outlined the options available to you.

Individual plans

If you have a Moda Health medical plan with an effective date of 10/1/13 or earlier, you can extend your Moda Health medical plan through Dec. 31, 2014.

If you have both a Moda Health medical plan and a Delta Dental of Alaska dental plan with an effective date of 10/1/13 or earlier, you can extend both plans through Dec. 31, 2014.

To take advantage of the option to extend your 2013 plans, no action is needed. We’ll automatically extend them for you, unless we hear from you. Keep in mind, 2013 plans are not eligible for tax credits.

Before you decide the best plan for you, please carefully review your options. Here’s a handy summary:

Option 1 – Keep your current plan until Dec. 31, 2014.
We’ll automatically renew your current Moda Health medical and/or Delta Dental of Alaska dental plan through Dec. 31, 2014 – unless you tell us otherwise by Dec. 31, 2013. There will be a one-time rate change to your monthly premium. On Dec. 6, we’ll mail you a letter with your new premium. Your deductibles and out-of-pocket accumulators will reset Jan. 1, 2014.

Option 2 – Choose a new Moda Health plan by Dec. 31, 2013.
If you’re ready to pick your new plan, just visit choosemoda.com and make your choice by Dec. 31, 2013. If we don’t hear from you by Dec. 31, 2013, we’ll automatically renew your current 2013 plan, effective Jan. 1, 2014.

Remember, you can also visit your state marketplace, healthcare.gov, to shop for a plan. If you qualify for tax credits, you’ll want to buy your medical plan through the marketplace to take advantage of those tax credits.

We hope this information makes finding the right care just a little bit easier. If you need a hand or have questions, please contact us. We’re here to help!

Hello.

We have exciting news to share. ODS is changing its name to Moda Health.

Moda comes from the latin term "modus" and means "a way". We picked it because that's what we are here to do: help our communities find a way to better health.

Together, we can be more, be better.
