The Network Provider contract gives EGID and the network provider the ability to terminate a contract without cause upon a 30-day, written notice. Network providers must send letters of termination by certified mail per the terms of the network provider contract. The return receipt serves as verification the information has been received. The actual effective date of the termination is 30 days from the date the termination letter is received by the EGID Network Management Unit.
A provider is terminated immediately if their license is suspended or revoked, or if their professional liability insurance is cancelled or not maintained in accordance with the network provider contract.
A HealthChoice Network Provider terminating with or without cause from the HealthChoice Network is prevented from re-contracting with EGID as a network provider for a period of 12 months following the effective date of termination, unless exceptional circumstances as determined by the EGID Administrator require the HealthChoice Plan to execute a new contract.
Please make a reasonable effort to inform all of your HealthChoice patients about your termination so they can make informed decisions about future provider utilization.
