Current Status of the Mcare Refund program
The claimed refund process is underway. All physicians are being refunded a percentage of their 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 (not 2013) assessments. The first refund letter notices will be sent in the fall of 2015 and the first refund checks will be sent out in early 2016.
Claims may be made by persons or entities that paid an assessment on behalf of a physician or other health care provider and seek to have Mcare pay the refund to them instead of the individual health care provider. An excel spreadsheet is needed to make a claim. Individual physicians do not need to make a “claim” or to ask for an excel spreadsheet to be paid the refund for their own coverage.
Our office will be reaching out to all of our PA insureds with instructions for claiming your MCARE refunds. Please visit www.mcarerefund.org for additional details or give us a call at (800)508-1355 with any questions.
