Medicare Select is a health plan that helps fill in the gaps of original Medicare. Medicare Select is designed to work with Medicare and pay certain charges Medicare does not cover.
Quartz does not cover Medicare Part D. If you are interested in purchasing a Medicare Part D plan, we can provide information about companies that cover this plan.
You can find a list of participating providers (doctors, hospitals and other health care facilities) by going to QuartzBenefits/findadoctor (select the Commerical HMO / POS network). To print a directory from Find A Doctor, select the "Show Printable List" icon and then answer the question "Medicare Select Network" with "Yes".
A primary care provider (PCP) is a doctor (MD), physician's assistant (PA) nurse practitioner (NP) who manages your health care so you receive consistent medical care in an effective and efficient manner. Your PCP will coordinate your medical care through the use of participating specialty practitioners.
Quartz requires most members to have a PCP.
To select your PCP, Quartz provides you with the following options –
Yes. You can change your PCP at any time.
We offer two convenient ways to change your PCP –
PCP changes are effective on the day of Quartz’s receipt of your request unless you request a future date.
You should talk with your PCP before seeing other types of practitioners, so he / she may coordinate your health care.
You should work with your PCP to determine if you need specialty care. If you do, he / she will refer you to an appropriate specialist who is participating for your network.
Requests to terminate coverage need to be submitted in writing.
