In early January caregivers and spouses covered by the health plan receive correspondence outlining the information the plan has on record and if additional information is required.
The correspondence also directs the member to log onto or activate their Healthy Choice Portal account. The portal describes what the plan member needs to do during the first nine months of the year to earn the best premium for the following year.
