Getting Started in UPHP MI Health Link
Some key terms you may see in the UPHP MI Health Link Provider and Pharmacy Directory:
- Providers are health care professionals and support providers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and other people who provide care and services. Services include medical care, long-term supports and services, supplies, prescription drugs, equipment and other services.
- The term providers also includes facilities such as hospitals, clinics, and other places that provide medical services, medical equipment, and long-term supports and services.
- Providers that are a part of our plan’s network are called network providers.
- Network providers are the providers that have contracted with us to provide services to members in our plan. The providers in our network generally bill us directly for care they give you. When you see a network provider, you usually pay nothing or pay only your share of the cost for covered services.
- A primary care provider (PCP) is a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner who gives you routine health care. Your PCP will keep your medical records and get to know your health needs over time. Your PCP will also give you a referral if you need to see a specialist or other provider.
- Specialists are doctors who provide health care services for a specific disease or part of the body. There are many kinds of specialists. Here are a few examples:
- Oncologists care for patients with cancer.
- Cardiologists care for patients with heart conditions.
- Orthopedists care for patients with certain bone, joint, or muscle conditions.
- You may need a referral to see a specialist or someone that is not your PCP. A referral means that your network PCP must give you approval before you can see the other provider.
- Referrals from your network PCP or our plan are not needed for:
- Emergency care;
- Urgently needed care;
- Kidney dialysis services that you get at a Medicare-certified dialysis facility when you are outside the plan’s service area; or
- Services from a women’s health specialist.
- Additionally, if you are eligible to receive services from Indian health providers, you may see these providers without a referral. We must pay the Indian health provider for those services even if they are out of our plan’s network.
- More information on referrals is available in Chapter 3 the Member Handbook.
- Referrals from your network PCP or our plan are not needed for:
- Your provider may need prior authorization or an approval from UPHP MI Health Link before you get certain services. Covered services that need prior authorization are marked in the Benefits Chart in Chapter 4 of the Member Handbook. Some drugs are covered only if you get prior authorization from us. Covered drugs that need prior authorization are marked in the List of Covered Drugs.
- You also have access to a Care Coordinator and a Care Team that you choose.
- A Care Coordinator helps you manage your medical providers and services.
- Your Care Team includes you, your chosen allies or legal representative, PCP, Care Coordinator, LTSS Coordinator and/or PIHP Supports Coordinator (as applicable), and others as needed. Everyone on the Care Team works together to make sure your care is coordinated. This means that they make sure tests and labs are done once and the results are shared with the appropriate providers. It also means that your PCP should know all medicines you take so that he or she can reduce any negative effects. Your PCP will always get your permission before sharing your medical information with other providers.
Choosing a Primary Care Provider (PCP)
You can get services from any provider who is in our network and accepting new members.
First, you will need to choose a PCP. You may be able to have a specialist act as your PCP. This will depend on your medical needs. This could be an obstetrician, gynecologist or internal medicine doctor. Call UPHP Customer Service at 1-877-349-9324 (TTY: 711), seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time before choosing a specialist as your PCP. The call is free.
To choose a PCP, you will need to choose a provider in the provider network:
- that you use now, or
- who has been recommended by someone you trust, or
- whose offices are easy for you to get to.
If you want help in choosing a PCP, please call UPHP Customer Service at 1-877-349-9324 (TTY: 711), seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time. The call is free.
If you have questions about whether we will pay for any medical service or care that you want or need, call Customer Service and ask before you get the service or care.
Getting Long-term Supports and Services (LTSS)
As a UPHP MI Health Link member, you may be able to get long-term supports and services (LTSS), such as home health, personal care, nursing home and home and community based services (adult day program, respite, expanded community living supports, preventive nursing services, private duty nursing, and other services). LTSS help people who need assistance to do everyday tasks like taking a bath, getting dressed, making food, and taking medicine. Most of these services are provided at your home or in your community but could be provided in a nursing home or hospital.
You should discuss LTSS with your Care Coordinator to determine which services you qualify for and how to access them.
Identifying Providers in UPHP MI Health Link’s Network
You may need a referral to see someone who is not a PCP.
You must get all of your covered services from providers within our network. If you go to providers who are not in UPHP MI Health Link’s network (without prior authorization or approval from us), you will have to pay the bill.
The exceptions to this rule are when you need urgent or emergency care or dialysis and cannot get to a provider in the plan, such as when you are away from home. You can also go outside the plan for other non-emergency services if UPHP MI Health Link gives you permission first.
- You may change providers within the network at any time. If you have been going to one network provider, you do not have to keep going to that same provider. For some providers, you may need a referral from your PCP.
