Healthcare Referrals With CareSource

One of the great added benefits with CareSource is that members do not need referrals from their PCP to see a specialist within the CareSource network of providers. However, in some cases, a specialist may require a prior authorization, in which case this provider will direct the request to CareSource and once the request is approved, the specialist will provide the member with an appointment. For any services that are not detailed on the CareSource website or which are listed as “coming soon,” the member needs to call the toll-free number and confirm if the service is covert.

Most members covered by Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids are required to make copayments. Depending on the service the copayments are either fixed or as a percentage of the cost of the service. For families where a member is also covered by additional insurance plans, Member Services will help plan members to coordinate pay claims as well as benefits.
