Prior Authorizations and Referrals

At Network Health, we believe in empowering you to control your health care decisions. You can see any in-network doctor without a referral, although select services require prior authorization.

What is a referral?
A referral is a written request from your personal doctor (also referred to as a primary care practitioner, or PCP), allowing you to see a specialist or receive specific medical services.
Prior authorization (or prior approval) is the process of getting permission from Network Health to determine if a service, procedure, test or out-of-network provider will be covered by your insurance.
Select services, procedures, tests and out-of-network providers require prior authorization before you receive care. You will receive written notification regarding the approval or denial of the Prior Authorization. If you are unsure if a service, procedure, test or procedure requires prior authorization or a referral, call customer service at 844-625-2208 prior to the appointment.

Care Outside the Service Area

If you are traveling outside the network service area and have a medical emergency that requires a visit to the emergency room or urgent care, get the medical care you need without worrying about your health insurance. Network Health will cover the cost of your visit, excluding any required deductible, coinsurance, or copayment. Follow-up care must be received from an in-network provider unless otherwise approved by Network Health. 

When should I go to the emergency room?
A trip to the emergency room is warranted if you experience an injury, a worsening medical condition or illness, severe pain, and/or you feel that your health is in danger if you do not receive care immediately. Call Network Health at 844-625-2208 or contact your personal doctor if you need help determining the appropriate level of care.
When should I go to urgent care?

Go to urgent care if your symptoms are moderate, but not severe or life-threatening. You may receive urgent care services from a nonparticipating facility, however you will only receive in-network benefits if one of the following is true:

  • You receive the services in the emergency department of a hospital or in a hospital-based urgent care facility, or
  • You receive the services in a nonhospital-based urgent care facility and you provide Network Health notification within 48 hours of receiving the services. Call the Network Health Care Management Department at 800-236-0208 (TTY 800-947-3529) to provide that notification.
  • Call Network Health at 844-625-2208 or contact your personal doctor if you need help determining the appropriate level of care.

Our free nurse advice line gives you access to a registered nurse that can help answer your specific medical problems - any time of the day or night. The nurse advice line can be accessed by calling 888-879-8960 (TTY 888-833-4271)
