If your child is eligible for California Children’s Services (CCS), CCS may be responsible for covering the hospital stay and the rWGS. Referrals For some types of care, your PCP or specialist will need to ask IEHP for permission before you get the care. This is called asking for prior authorization, prior approval, or pre-approval. It means that IEHP must make sure that the care is medically necessary or needed based on appropriateness of care and services and existence of coverage. Care is medically necessary if it is reasonable and necessary to protect your life, keeps you from becoming seriously ill or disabled, or reduces severe pain from a diagnosed disease, illness or injury. For some services, you need pre-approval (prior authorization). Under Health and Safety Code Section 1367.01(h)(2), IEHP will decide routine pre-approvals within 5 working days of when IEHP gets the information reasonably needed to decide. For requests in which a provider indicates or IEHP determines that following the standard timeframe could seriously jeopardize your life or health or ability to attain, maintain, or regain maximum function, IEHP will make an expedited (fast) pre-approval decision. IEHP will give notice as quickly as your health condition requires and no later than 72 hours after receiving the request for services. If IEHP does not approve the request, IEHP will send you a Notice of Action (NOA) letter. The NOA letter will tell you how to file an appeal if you do not agree with the decision. IEHP will contact you if IEHP needs more information or more time to review your request. Continuity of Care  If you now go to providers who are not in the IEHP network (out-of-network), in certain cases you may get continuity of care and be able to go to them for up to 12 months. If your providers do not join the IEHP network by the end of 12 months, you will need to switch to providers in the IEHP network. If you are a new Member, you may request to keep getting medical services from an out of network provider if you were getting this care before enrolling in IEHP. IEHP will decide if this treatment with an out of network provider is medically appropriate. Continuity of care does not extend to durable medical equipment, transportation, ancillary services, carved out services or services not covered by Medi-Cal. To learn more about continuity of care and eligibility qualifications, call IEHP Member Services at 1-800-440-IEHP (4347). Prescription drugs Most prescription drugs are covered by Medi-Cal Rx, some drugs may be covered by IEHP. Your provider can prescribe you drugs that are on the Medi-Cal Rx Contract Drugs List. To find out if a drug is on the Contract Drug List or to get a copy of the Contract Drug List, call Medi-Cal Rx at 1-800-977-2273 (TTY 1-800-977-2273 and press 5 or 711), visit the Medi-Cal Rx website at www.MediCalRx.dhcs.ca.gov/home/, or call IEHP Member Services at 1-800-440-IEHP (4347), Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.

Prior Authorization and Out of Network Coverage  What kinds of medical care and other services can you get without getting approval in advance from your Primary Care Provider (PCP) in IEHP DualChoice (HMO D-SNP)? You can get services such as those listed below without getting approval in advance from your Primary Care Provider (PCP). Routine women’s health care, which includes breast exams, screening mammograms (X-rays of the breast), Pap tests, and pelvic exams as long as you get them from a network provider. Flu shots as long as you get them from a network provider. Emergency services from network providers or from out-of-network providers. Urgently needed care from in-network providers or from out-of-network providers when network providers are temporarily unavailable or inaccessible, e.g., when you are temporarily outside of the plan’s service area. Kidney dialysis services that you get at a Medicare-certified dialysis facility when you are temporarily outside the plan’s service area. (If possible, please call IEHP DualChoice Member Services before you leave the service area so we can help arrange for you to have maintenance dialysis while you are away.) How to get care from specialists and other network providers A specialist is a doctor who provides 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 will usually see your PCP first for most of your routine healthcare needs such as physical checkups, immunization, etc. When your PCP thinks that you need specialized treatment or supplies, your PCP will need to get prior authorization (i.e., prior approval) from your Plan and/or medical group. This is called a referral. Your PCP will send a referral to your plan or medical group. It is very important to get a referral (approval in advance) from your PCP before you see a Plan specialist or certain other providers. If you don’t have a referral (approval in advance) before you get services from a specialist, you may have to pay for these services yourself. PCPs are usually linked to certain hospitals and specialists. When you choose a PCP, it also determines what hospital and specialist you can use.  What if a specialist or another network provider leaves our plan? Sometimes a specialist, clinic, hospital or other network provider you are using might leave the plan. When a provider leaves a network, we will mail you a letter informing you about your new provider. If you prefer a different one, please call IEHP DualChoice Member Services and we can assist you in finding and selecting another provider. How to get care from out-of-network providers When your doctor recommends services that are not available in our network, you can receive these services by an out-of-network provider. In order to receive out-of-network services, your Primary Care Provider (PCP) or Specialist must submit a referral request to your plan or medical group. All requests for out-of-network services must be approved by your medical group prior to receiving services. IEHP DualChoice (HMO D-SNP) is a HMO Plan with a Medicare contract. Enrollment in IEHP DualChoice (HMO D-SNP) is dependent on contract renewal. This is not a complete list.  Information on this page is current as of October 1, 2022. H8894_DSNP_23_3241532_M
