ORDER GRANTING EVERCARE'S MOTION TO AMEND AND OHANA'S JOINDER On August 27, 2009, Intervenor United Healthcare Insurance Company d/b/a Evercare ("Evercare") filed a motion to amend the Court's Order Denying Plaintiffs' Motions For Temporary Restraining Orders And To Expedite The Hearings On Their Motions For Preliminary Injunctions. Evercare asks that the Court amend
the order by specifying that the Transition Period has effectively been extended "as to Plaintiffs." The same day,
Intervenor Wellcare Health Insurance of Arizona, Inc. d/b/a Ohana Health Plan ("Ohana") filed a joinder in the motion. On
September 4, 2009, Plaintiffs filed a statement of no opposition to Evercare's motion. While the order makes clear on page 12 that the Transition Period has been effectively extended as to each Plaintiff only ("counsel for Evercare and Ohana agreed to extend the Transition Period as to each Plaintiff until the Court rules on the motions for preliminary injunctions"), for purposes of avoiding any possible misunderstanding the Court will grant Evercare's motion and Ohana's joinder and will file an amended order incorporating the following underscored language: At page 13: "as the Transition Period has effectively
been extended by the QExA Contractors as to Plaintiffs" At page 14: "having found that the Transition Period
has basically been extended as to Plaintiffs" At page 15: "as the Transition Period has effectively
been extended by the QExA Contractors as to Plaintiffs" At page 15: "having found that the Transition Period
has effectively been extended as to Plaintiffs"
IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: Honolulu, Hawai`i, September 4, 2009.
