Your PCP: A Partner for Good Health
As soon as you join VIP Premier (HMO) Medicare, you should choose a PCP who works with you to manage your health. You can change your PCP, either online or by phone, at any time.
Your PCP will:
- Provide most of your primary and preventive care
- Refer you to specialists as needed
- Coordinate the care you get from specialists
- Arrange hospital admissions, when necessary. (Please note that specialists can also arrange for hospital admissions.)
Provider Coverage: In Network
To take advantage of all the benefits this plan offers, you need to see practitioners and health care providers in the VIP Premier (HMO) Medicare network. You can get covered services from any provider within this network. If you see a doctor or provider who is not in the network, you may have to pay for the medical services yourself.
In cases of emergency, your care is covered regardless of the provider’s network status; you will be completely covered at any doctor’s office or hospital nationwide. Emergency admissions should be reported within 48 hours, or as soon as reasonably possible.
For urgently needed care when you need to go to the emergency room, please note that your plan may require a copay. The copay will be waived if you are admitted to the hospital.
