Medicare Takes Action Against Insurance Company

An insurance company operating in Hawaii and 20 other states has been ordered to stop marketing and enrollment of new members to its Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.

The order affecting Fox Insurance Co. of New York came from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

CMS says the Fox drug plan hasn’t been able to meet the prescription drug needs of some of its newest members, which could pose serious threats to their health and safety.

Fox has nearly 3,000 Medicare enrollees in Hawaii.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services oversees the federal health programs for the poor and elderly.
