2007 Assessment Rating - 23%
New Assessment Payment Option Available
Mcare is pleased to announce it will accept assessment payments through an electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment process, effective immediately. The EFT may be an ACH or wire transfer. The EFT process provides primary insurers with alternative payment methods, in addition to paper checks. We strongly recommend the use of EFTs when payments are made.
To learn more about this new payment option and the minimum standards, please send an email
to Mcare’s Fiscal Unit expressing your interest. We will have an Mcare representative call you to explain the program. We thank you in advance for considering Mcare's preferred method of payment.
Cancellations and Endorsements: Update of the exceptions to the no credit rule as found on page 13.

IMPORTANT PROCESSING UPDATE - ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS:
Effective January 1, 2013, electronic submission of Excel type e-216 is the preferred method of reporting basic professional liability insurance coverage to Mcare. No longer is a hardcopy 216 required when submitting your e-216 with or without payment. This change applies to all submissions, regardless of the assessment year, with a run date on or after January 1, 2013
. The e-216 must be sent to the following e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
If payment is due, the check must be mailed to Mcare at the same time the e-216 is emailed. For complete details, please refer to page 8 of the 2013 Assessment Manual
The standard for submitting new and renewal business to Mcare is to do so electronically via Form e-216, or one of the other two approved formats listed in the manual. Submitting electronically increases Mcare's ability to process coverage information and payment in a more efficient and expeditious manner.
This form is to be used by basic professional liability insurance carriers and approved self-insurers for summarizing surcharges/assessments collected, payable and refundable. Except for an approved self-insured health care provider, a health care provider may not complete this form.
A check in the amount of the sum of all surcharges/assessments due, should be received in Mcare’s Office within 60 days from the effective date of coverage, cancellation or endorsement.
