The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has ordered WellCare Health Plans Inc. to suspend sales of 2 Medicare plans, the company says.
In response to the order, WellCare, Tampa, Fla., says it will suspend sales of its Medicare Advantage plan and prescription drug plan by March 7.
Existing members of the Medicare plans will continue to have access to covered health care services, the company says.
The action does not affect WellCare’s Medicaid and State Children’s Health Insurance Program plans.
CMS ordered the suspension after reviewing the results of an audit, WellCare says.
