Health Plan Enrollment
An eligible individual will receive an enrollment choice packet by mail to select a plan from the available plans in their area.
If you’re pregnant and enrolled in a QUEST Integration Health Plan on the date you deliver your child, your newborn will automatically be enrolled in your health plan for a minimum of 30 days from the date of birth. Med-QUEST will mail you an enrollment packet and give the option to change your newborn’s health plan after the first 30 days.
If your Medicaid eligibility ends for any reason, your QUEST Integration health plan enrollment will also end. You may reapply at any time. If you become eligible within six months from when you last had Medicaid benefits, Med-QUEST will assign you to your former health plan.
