65C Plus (Cost) has a contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the government agency that runs the Medicare program. This contract renews each year. At the end of each year, the contract is reviewed, and either 65C Plus (Cost) or CMS can decide to end it. It is possible for our contract to end at some other time during the year, too. If the contract should end, HMSA will provide advance notice to all 65C Plus (Cost) members.
