Members can request a cost estimate if they meet eligibility guidelines and are currently enrolled in the health plan. An estimate does not guarantee coverage, and each admission, procedure, or service must be a medically necessary covered benefit and meet medical guidelines. All prior authorization and referrals must be obtained, if necessary.
There are two options for receiving an estimate of your financial responsibility for an upcoming service or procedure.
