The provision specifically affects those who are insured through Health Alliance HMO, Health Alliance Illinois and Coventry HMO.

According to the announcement, those contracts could potentially be extended all of the way until the end of the fiscal year – June 30, 2013 – if new contracts cannot be negotiated prior to then.

Employees will be notified by CMS, and by Human Resource Services, if or when coverage options change.
