Welcome To Health Partners
We thoroughly qualify and carefully screen all providers in the Health Partners Network. Each of them must meet specific educational and medical practice standards in order to become a Health Partners provider.Participating Provider Listing
The participating provider listing consists of providers who are contracted with the Health Partners network. Participating network providers cover a broad scope of services, including the following:
You have the Choice
- Rehabilitation - physical, occupational and speech therapy
- Ambulatory Surgery Center
- Home Health and Hospice
- Mental Health
- Diagnostic Services
- Durable Medical Equipment Suppliers
- Hearing Center
- and Other Specialty Services
Each time you need medical care, you will make a choice about which doctor you would like to see. If you decide on a doctor in the Health Partners network, go ahead and call for an appointment. As with most PPO plans you should not need a referral to see a doctor or specialists; however, verify with your employer if your plan does require a referral.
You are also free to use another provider who is not a member of the Health Partners network. Depending on your plan design, the cost of using an out-of-network provider could be higher. You can contact your employee benefits administrator to verify this coverage.Making your Appointment
When you call an in-network doctor for an appointment, let the office know you are covered under the Health Partners PPO Network. You want to make sure the doctor is currently participating in the Health Partners network by calling Health Partners member services at 770-219-6600.
Sometimes, a provider that is not listed in the directory may have recently joined the network giving you the opportunity to save on cost. On the other hand, providers on the list sometimes leave the network. In this case, you may want to make a decision to change your provider to reduce incurred cost to you.Verifying Your Participation
Be sure to bring your ID card when you arrive at the office for your appointment. Your ID card confirms you have contractual access to the Health Partners network and it also contains important information about your plan benefits, such as your co-payment requirement and a pre-certification phone number, if one is needed.Co-Payment
A co-payment is the responsibility of the insured and is expected to be paid at the time of service.
Your plan may or may not require a co-payment. If a co-payment is required, you will find the amount you need to pay on your ID card. If the information is not there, you should contact your employee benefits administrator for verification.
