									UNICARE PATIENT NOTICE

UNICARE PULLING OUT OF ILLINOIS – Time for a Change


Fertility Centers of Illinois has received news that UNICARE is withdrawing their health plans from Illinois.

Active treatment cycles currently underway with UNICARE patients at FCI will not be disrupted.

You will be asked to choose another insurance plan offered by your employer or the guaranteed coverage
offered through Blue Cross Blue Shield.

To continue services with FCI you need to select the Blue Cross PPO or Point Of Service
(POS) plan. FCI does not contract with HMOI and Blue Advantage which are the Blue Cross HMO
plans in Illinois.

You should contact your employer immediately and determine the time frame and procedures necessary
for you to switch to new coverage.

To be sure that you can continue your treatment with FCI, we want to remind you of our contracted plans.

FCI accepts most insurance plans including:

            Advocate Health Care PHOs for Humana HMO
            Aetna - HMO/POS/PPO
            Blue Cross/Blue Shield of IL - POS/PPO
            Cigna - Out-of-network only
            Coventry/First Health - HMO/POS/PPO
            Great West Healthcare - HMO/POS/PPO
            HFN - PPO
            Humana - HMO/POS/PPO
            Multiplan - PPO
            Private Health Care Systems - POS/PPO
            United Health Care - HMO/POS/PPO
            United Resources Network - PPO

Your employer will have the details of coverage available to you. As you review your new benefits, take
care to look for plan coverage limitations (e.g., diagnostic only coverage), benefit maximums, and
exclusions (e.g., donor and surrogate services).

Once you have specific information about the plan in which you will be enrolled and the effective date of
your coverage, you may contact us at (847) 729-2188. Ask for the Insurance Verifier assigned to the plan
you have chosen. They can work individually with you to address specific questions and verify the
insurance benefits available to continue treatment with us.

Regardless of your insurance or payment plan, we are confident that FCI can provide you with the best
available services to help you achieve your goal of parenthood.

Sincerely,

The Physicians and Staff of Fertility Centers of Illinois
