Know What Your Plan Requires

You may need to preauthorize certain covered health services to ensure you avoid unexpected costs. Preauthorization means that you need to get approval from your health insurance before you can have certain health services performed. This is important to know before you get these services, so we can help you avoid higher costs.

Usually, your network provider will take care of this before the service is performed. But it’s best to confirm for yourself.

You may call the number on the back of your member ID card before you get care.

1 24/7 Nurseline is not available to HMO members. For medical emergencies, call 911. This program is not a substitute for a doctor’s care. Talk to your doctor about any health questions or concerns.
