Deadline for Medicaid and PeachCare recipients

September 13, 2006

Albany -- Medicaid and PeachCare recipients in southwest Georgia have a deadline to choose one of two new health plan services.

Those who don't enroll by October 1st will automatically be placed into either the Peach State or WellCare plan.

Georgia Healthy Families is an organization reaching out to educate families on the new services and help them enroll.

"Instead of them just being put into a program, we're getting involved because we want them to be able to say okay this program sounds better for my child, or myself," said Andrea Gibson of Georgia Healthy Families.

Medicaid and PeachCare Recipients will keep current health plan benefits.

Peach State and WellCare plans give families extra services in addition to the basic health services they already receive.

You can visit the Georgia Healthy Families website at www.gahealthyfamilies.com or call the organization at 1 (888) GA-ENROLL.

They have information on the extra services offered by the new health plans.
