Yes, as a Community Care Health member you’re covered for emergency care wherever you are, although routine care is only covered at home in our service area. If you think you’re having a medical or psychiatric emergency call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
You and your primary care physician (PCP) will determine the best specialist for your particular needs. In some cases you may be able to see a specialist directly without a referral from your PCP. No referral is required for participating mental health providers, pediatricians, and obstetricians and gynecologists. If you have any questions about how to see a specialist call customer service at (855) 343-2247.
Community Care Health is a comprehensive health care service plan that offers a full range of medical care. Covered services always include coverage for doctor office visits, hospital stays, surgery, outpatient procedures, preventive services (periodic immunizations, physical exams, and routine screenings) and much more. These services are provided at varying levels of copayments and/or coinsurance. Coverage varies depending on the benefit plan you’re enrolled in. Contact member services if you have questions about which services are covered under your plan and your cost share.

You can obtain a Summary of Benefits from your human resources department or you can contact us to have a benefits summary sent to you.

Call 911 or go to the closest emergency room anytime you have a life-threatening emergency. If you’re not sure it’s an emergency call your doctor’s office for advice.

It’s an emergency if your symptoms are so severe that you believe not getting medical care right away could place your health or someone else’s (or the health of an unborn child) at risk OR cause major harm to a body part or function. If you feel you’re having an emergency, you don’t need an OK from us or your primary care physician to get care.

As a Community Care Health member you have access to great resources like:

  • Mental health care services for all ages
  • Inpatient hospital services.
  • Outpatient services
  • Access to Community Care Health providers without primary care physician referral

For more information about your benefits call our customer care team toll-free at (855) 343-2247.

You don’t need a referral from your primary care physician to get access to mental health services. However, only services offered through plan providers will be covered. So the best way to ensure coverage is to find a doctor in your network before taking the next step.
