The Medical Department has been receiving letters from medical providers who will NOT BE ACCEPTING ASSIGNMENT FROM MEDICARE effective immediately.

ALL Medicare eligible members must see a medical provider who accepts Medicare. If Medicare doesn’t pay, then the Medicare eligible members will not be covered by the secondary insurer. The Chicago Province Medical Plan will have to pay the bill in full. Be sure to ask your doctor if he accepts Medicare. If he does not, then call Burri at 800-241-3326. Tell them you are a member of the Society of the Divine Word. Ask them for an in-network medical provider in your area. Thank you for your cooperation.

Any questions, please contact Kathie Till-Andrikokus at 847-272-2700, Ext. 1615.
