GIC Begins Notifying Physicians of Tier Designations

The Group Insurance Commission this week began notifying physicians about their tier designations for the 2012-2013 benefit year.

We encourage physicians to review this information immediately and contact each of the health plans if they have questions or want to appeal their tier designation.

The deadline to file an appeal of your designation is January 24. If you miss the deadline, you won’t be able to appeal for another year. The plans have said they will notify you of the outcome of your appeal by February 14.

Each health plan, in their communications to physicians, has provided information about who to contact and how to appeal. Keep track of your communications with each plan to make follow-up easier. We are also updating our website with this and additional information at www.massmed.org/tiering.
