CMSP members may be eligible for CMSP in different ways. Certain members
do not have a monthly Share of Cost (SOC) and they receive the CMSP Standard Benefit without any cost sharing. Other members do have a monthly SOC and they receive the CMSP Standard Benefit after that SOC is paid or obligated each month. Some members (undocumented members) are eligible for emergency services only, and they may have a monthly SOC depending on their level of income.
Members with a monthly SOC for their CMSP Standard Benefit are also eligible for the CMSP Primary Care Benefit. This added benefit requires no SOC or other cost sharing for covered medical services and requires a $5.00 copay for covered prescriptions. This benefit is intended to help these CMSP members get primary care and/or specialty care services as quickly as possible.
