Provider Coverage: In- and Out-of-Network
If you want out-of-network coverage while keeping in-network copays low, choose the GHI CBP plan.
With our robust network of quality doctors, you can get care from many of the region’s leading doctors, medical professionals, and facilities (including hospitals and urgent care centers).
With the GHI CBP plan, you never need a referral to see in-network doctors. And along with in-network doctors, you can get covered care from any doctor you choose, offering you the widest possible choice.
Covered services from out-of-network doctors do, however, have deductibles and coinsurance. Payment for services provided by out-of-network providers is made directly to you under the NYC Non-Participating Provider Schedule of Allowable Charges (Schedule). The reimbursement rates in the Schedule are not related to usual and customary rates or to what the provider may charge. They are set at a fixed amount based on GHI’s 1983 reimbursement rates. Most of the reimbursement rates have not increased since that time and will likely be less (in many instances, substantially less) than the fee charged by the out-of-network doctor or facility. You will be responsible for any difference between their fee and the amount of the reimbursement. Therefore, you may have a substantial out-of-pocket expense.
If you intend to use an out-of-network doctor or facility, you can get an estimate of the costs before you visit. EmblemHealth has a new self-service, treatment cost calculator in the member portal, myEmblemHealth. The service estimates out-of-pocket costs, or what you may pay for certain items and services. Members can save a PDF copy of the information they view in the online tool on the website or member portal. Members can also contact EmblemHealth Customer Service if they have trouble using the tool, or if they would like a paper copy mailed to them. Please note that this is just an estimate at the time you use the tool. Actual cost may vary based on actual services received and any changes to rates that may happen after the estimate. The best way to use your GHI CBP plan and save on out-of-pocket costs is to see a doctor within the network. Your out-of-pocket costs are lowest — in most cases, just a copay — when you see doctors within our network.
