Introduction to the Provider Directory

This directory provides a list of Central Health Medicare Plan network providers. To get detailed information about your health care coverage, please see your Evidence of Coverage (EOC).

You will have to choose one of our network providers listed in this directory to be your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Generally, you must get your health care services from your PCP. Your PCP is a physician who meets state requirements and is trained to give you basic medical care. You will get your routine or basic care from your PCP. Your PCP can also coordinate the rest of the covered services you need. In most cases, you must see your PCP to get a referral before you see any other health care provider.

The network providers listed in this directory have agreed to provide you with your health care services. You may go to any of our network providers listed in this directory; however, some services may require a referral. If you have been going to one network provider, you are not required to continue to go to that same provider. In some cases, you may get covered services from out-of-network providers.

What if you use out-of-network providers to get covered services?

Out-of-network providers are providers that are not part of Central Health Medicare Plan. If you use out-of-network providers, you may have to pay more. Care or services you get from out-of-network providers will not be covered, except for ambulance services, emergency care, including post-stabilization care, urgently needed care, renal dialysis (kidney), and any services which were ordered covered through an appeals process.

What if you receive a bill from an out-of-network provider?

If an out-of-network provider sends you a bill for covered services that you think should be paid by our plan, DO NOT pay the bill. Please contact Member Services at 1-866-314-2427. TTY/TDD users call 1-888-205-7671. We will ask you to send the bill to us so that we can process and determine the amount you owe, if any. If you have already paid for any medical care that we cover, we will reimburse you for our share of the cost.

How to get covered services when you have an emergency?

When you have a “medical emergency,” you believe that your health is in serious danger. A medical emergency can include severe pain, a bad injury, a sudden illness, or a medical condition that is quickly getting much worse.

If you have a medical emergency:

  • Get help as quickly as possible. Call 911 for help or go to the nearest emergency room or hospital. Call for an ambulance if you need it. You do not need to get approval or a referral first from your PCP.
  • As soon as possible, make sure that our plan has been told about your emergency. We need to follow up on your emergency care. You or someone else should call to tell us about your emergency care, usually within 48 hours. Please refer to the information provided on the back of your membership card for specific directions and appropriate phone numbers to call.

After the emergency is over you are entitled to follow-up care to be sure your condition continues to be stable. Your follow-up care will be covered by our plan. If your emergency care is provided by out-of-network providers, we will try to arrange for network providers to take over your care as soon as your medical condition and the circumstances allow.

How to get urgently needed care?

“Urgently needed care” is a non-emergency situation when:

  • You need medical care right away because of an illness, injury, or condition that you did not expect or anticipate, but your health is not in serious danger.
  • Because of the situation, it isn’t reasonable for you to obtain medical care from a network provider.

Whenever possible, you must use our network providers when you are in the plan’s service area and you have an urgent need for care. In most situations, if you are in the plan’s service area, we will cover urgently needed care only if you get this care from a network provider. If the circumstances are unusual or extraordinary, and network providers are temporarily unavailable or inaccessible, our plan will cover urgently needed care that you get from a non-network provider.

You must use network providers except in emergency or urgent care situations or for out-of-area renal dialysis or other services. If you obtain routine care from out-of-network providers neither Medicare nor Central Health Medicare Plan will be responsible for the costs.

How do you find Central Health Medicare Plan providers in your area?

The PCPs in this directory are organized alphabetically by the cities where they reside, and further listed in alphabetical order by last name within each city. By looking up the city in which you reside, you will be able to find the physicians listed in your area. The specialty care providers (specialists) are organized alphabetically by the physician groups they belong to. If there is a particular plan specialist that you want to use, check first to be sure your PCP makes referrals to that specialist. Your PCP choice may restrict you to a specific group of specialists.

If you have questions about Central Health Medicare Plan or require assistance in selecting a PCP, please call our Member Service Department at 1-866-314-2427, 7 days a week, 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. (PT). TTY/TDD users should call 1-888-205-7671. Or, visit www.centralhealthplan.com.
