For certain kinds of drugs, you can use our mail-order services. Generally, the drugs provided through mail-order (MO) are drugs that you take on a regular basis for a chronic or long-term medical condition such as high blood pressure or diabetes. The drugs available through our plan’s mail-order service are marked as “mail-order or MO” in our List of Drugs (Formulary).
Our plan’s mail-order service allows you to order up to a 90-day supply. To get order forms and information about filling your prescriptions by mail, contact Member Services.
You can authorize anyone (like a relative, friend, advocate, an attorney, or a doctor) to act as your representative and file an appeal or ask for a coverage decision on your behalf. Just complete an Appointment of Representative form (PDF) and follow the instructions on where to send it.
Visit our Appeals and Grievances web page for more information about this form and how to authorize a representative.
How to Get Care
Your PCP is your main doctor. Your PCP should know your complete medical history to evaluate changes in your health. You can visit your PCP for sick and well visits. Your PCP will also help with coordinating other services, such as seeing a specialist or having a procedure in a hospital or an outpatient facility.
If you don't have a PCP, here are ways to choose one:
- Use our Find a Provider tool to find an in-network provider and contact Member Services with your selection.
- Or, you can just call us! Member Services will help you find a PCP.
If you already have a PCP:
That’s great! You may want to contact Member Services or use our Find a Provider tool to make sure your PCP is in our network. If your PCP is not in our network, don’t worry, we will work with you to make sure you are assigned a PCP that is in our network.
Deciding where to go for care can sometimes be confusing. For non-emergency illness or injury, call your PCP, contact the 24/7 nurse advice line or visit an in-network urgent care facility. If you feel you are experiencing a life-threatening condition, go to the emergency room (ER).
See below to help you decide where to go for the care you need.
DO YOU HAVE A PHYSICAL INJURY OR ILLNESS LIKE THE FLU? IF YES...
- Call Our 24/7 Nurse Advice Line at [2019_PHONE_NURSE] (TTY: 711)
Get quick, reliable answers to your health questions.
- Call Your Primary Care Provider (PCP)
Set up an appointment to see your main doctor.
- Go to In-Network Urgent Care
Get quickly diagnosed and treated for less serious illnesses or injuries.
CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY OR GO TO AN EMERGENCY ROOM IF:
You feel you have a life-threatening injury or illness like:

Always follow up with your PCP if you have gone to an emergency room, visited an urgent care facility or had a hospital stay.
