First Choice VIP Care Plus (Medicare-Medicaid Plan) wants to make sure you stay covered.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) was able to keep Medical Assistance (MA) coverage open for most people during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) even if they were no longer eligible. Now, SCDHHS must make sure that everyone who is receiving MA is still eligible by reviewing each person's information.
