CENTERVILLE, Texas (KBTX) - Some people in Leon and Freestone Counties were recently notified that the Medicare Advantage plan would no longer be available in those areas. Baylor Scott and White says other plans are available.

According to a statement from Baylor Scott and White Health (BSW) an unexpected change required the Scott and White Health Plan to limit the products being offered in 2021.

“While group and individual plans are available, we are not able to offer Medicare Advantage plans in Leon and Freestone Counties for the 2021 plan year,” the statement said. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our members, and we are doing everything we can to help them through this impact.”

BSW said members impacted by the change can call 1-866-334-3141 from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m., seven days a week, to find available options.

“Our intention is to once again make our Medicare Advantage products available in Leon and Freestone Counties as soon as possible, and we look forward to continuing our relationships with current enrollees who have physicians at Baylor Scott & White Health.”
