DoctorCare, Inc. ("DoctorCare") was a provider-sponsored health maintenance organization which provided health care coverage to approximately 5,700 Medicare subscribers and was headquartered in Coral Gables, Florida. Medicare contracts and premiums are administered through the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS").
On November 20, 2006, DoctorCare was declared insolvent and placed into receivership for purposes of rehabilitation by the Second Judicial Circuit Court ("Court") in Tallahassee, Florida. The Florida Department of Financial Services is the court appointed Receiver of DoctorCare. The rehabilitation order was entered to allow the Receiver to conserve the assets of DoctorCare and assist CMS in its efforts to provide a smooth transition for DoctorCare’s subscribers to other Medicare providers. Unfortunately, DoctorCare's financial condition prohibited any realistic chance for a successful rehabilitation of the company.
On December 1, 2006, the Court ordered DoctorCare into liquidation and health care coverage with DoctorCare was cancelled as of that date. As a Medicare member, however, the former DoctorCare members received continued health care coverage through other health maintenance organizations. CMS arranged for two local health maintenance organizations - Preferred Care Partners, Inc., and WellCare of Florida, Inc. CMS randomly assigned each DoctorCare subscriber to one of these two companies.
