FY17 – Sharp Select Plan Effective 8/1/16

August 1, 2016 kicks off the new FY17 benefit year. As of today, all Sharp Select plan participants with an August 1 effective date have been loaded into the Sharp Health Plan system and can access services.

Sharp Health Plan will be issuing new cards to all current and new enrollees on Sharp Select. ID cards for new enrollees began going out on July 20, and ID Cards for current enrollees began mailing August 1, 2016 . If you have not received your card(s) by August 15, 2016, please contact the Sharp/MEA Hotline at 888 840-4747 or MEA Benefits at benefits@sdmea.org.

Here are some important items to know:

  1. If you are currently on the plan, you will get a new ID Card because of the copay changes. Your Sharp member ID will remain the same. You should destroy your old ID card once you receive the new one.
  2. If you are new to the plan, you can access services without your card by notifying the service provider that you are with Sharp Health Plan. The service provider will call Sharp Health Plan to verify eligibility.
  3. If you did not select a doctor during open enrollment, you will be auto assigned a provider and that provider information will be on our ID card. If you need to access services now, you will need to call the Sharp Hotline at (888) 840-4747.
  4. If you need to change your primary care doctor, order a replacement card or would like to verify your eligibility, please call the Sharp Hotline at 888.840.4747.
