Member Services

Each plan's Member Services can help you: find a doctor, learn about benefits, access services, file a complaint about a provider or appeal a denied service. All plans have a 24 hour Nurse Hotline to help you figure out if you need to go to the emergency room or learn about health issues. All health plans allow unlimited visits to in-network doctors, as needed.

Care management programs

All of the health plans have special programs to help members with chronic illness such as asthma, congestive heart failure, diabetes, hepatitis C, HIV, obesity and sickle cell anemia.
