To all Neighborhood Health Plan Medicaid Patients

To all Neighborhood Health Plan Medicaid Patients

We are sorry to announce that as of January 1, 2017 Blackstone Valley Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine will no longer accept Neighborhood Health Plan Medicaid. We continue to accept only newborns with Neighborhood until their insurance is changed.

We sincerely wish to continue to follow and to care for your children. If you desire to remain with Blackstone Valley Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine we request that you change over your health insurance plan to United HealthCare Medicaid. You can request this change immediately under one of the following conditions:

  1. Change within the first 90 days after having a new baby
  2. Change at annual Medicaid benefits review
  3. Change because your child’s primary pediatrician no longer accepts your insurance

Change can be requested by calling Neighborhood-RI customer service at 844-602-3469 and ask to be switched over to United HealthCare Medicaid. A Neighborhood ID or a Social Security number is necessary to initiate the switch for each family member. Or, for your convenience, please download this necessary form to switch from Neighborhood Health Plan of RI to United HealthCare Medicaid. Please complete and sign and mail it to:

Neighborhood Health Plan of RI
910 Douglas Pike
Smithfield, RI  02917

Please make sure to use registered mail. If it is more convenient, we would be happy to mail completed forms from our Cumberland office. Our staff is available to help you with any questions or concerns and processing the change form. Please let us know if you experience difficulty from Neighborhood Health Plan of RI regarding your right to change and please let us know when the switch has been requested.

We apologize for any inconvenience created by dropping Neighborhood Health Plan Medicaid. We appreciate your efforts to switch coverage to United HealthCare Medicaid to remain as patients of Blackstone Valley Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine.
