Navicure Updates Needed


Please update your eTHOMAS program NOW!


Navicure has made updates, so you need to too!


You need to update prior to March 1, 2016

Navicure has changed how it will process eligibility, so it was necessary for us to make updates to THOMAS as well, to keep up with their new processes. If you do not update your eTHOMAS program, prior to March 1, 2016, we fully expect your eligibility to stop working. Please take time to back up, then update your eTHOMAS program by the end of this month. Then you should have no transition whatsoever - it's already been done for you. Simply Genius!





Thanks for being a Genius client and letting us serve you.


Sincerely,
— Genius Solutions, Inc.
