AS OF FEBRUARY 1, 2017, WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT LINCOLN PEDIATRIC ASSOCIATES WILL NO LONGER BE ACCEPTING NEIGHBORHOOD HEALTH PLANS OF RHODE ISLAND.
If you are insured though Neighborhood RIte Care and wish to continue to have Lincoln Pediatrics care for your family, you need to contact Neighborhood Health Plans of RI customer service at 844.602.3469 and let them know that you wish to change your coverage to United HealthCare. You will need to provide them with your Neighborhood ID and social security number for each insured member of your family. They will send you a form to fill out and return. This should be done as soon as possible. We will also have these forms available at our offices or you can download it here. Please make sure you have one of our providers listed as your child’s Primary Care Provider (PCP) with United Healthcare. This should be done ASAP because as of February 1, 2017, you will no longer be able to bring your children to our office.
If your family is insured through a Neighborhood commercial product purchased through the healthcare exchange, please call HealthSource RI at 855.840.4774 to change your health insurance to another health insurance. Again, make sure one of our physicians is listed as your child’s Primary Care Provider.
Please let our staff know if you are having any difficulty with this transition. It is your right as a health care consumer to change your health insurance coverage under these circumstances.
If you wish to transfer your child’s care to a Neighborhood Health Plan participating provider, we will transfer your child’s records upon written request.
