Health care made easy
When you have a health problem, you may have questions about what’s covered. You may need help finding a provider near you. That’s why our Member Services team is here to help you.
Member Services is here Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern. Call us with questions about your benefits.
There may be times when a contracted provider cannot give you the care you need. If this happens, you may need to get care from a provider that is not contracted with the health plan. We must approve this first.
We only cover needed care or supplies. We decide medical need by looking at the normal standards of care. We choose if the care meets these standards.
Please read your member handbook. It gives more facts on your covered benefits.
