AmeriHealth Caritas North Carolina will pay for your care for covered services when you meet required terms and conditions and go to one of our health care providers. We call these providers our "network" providers. Network providers are providers that we have contracted with to provide health care services. You can find a network provider in our online provider directory.
A provider who is not one of ours is called "out-of-network." If you go to one of these providers, you may have to pay for the care you get.
When you are sick
- Using your primary care provider (PCP)
Your PCP is your regular doctor. Visit your PCP for checkups, exams and more.
- Emergencies and urgent care
Urgent care is for conditions that are serious, but are not emergencies. If you have a health emergency, call 911 now.
- How to stay healthy after your hospital stay
Some people end up back in the hospital soon after their stay. Here's some tips about how you can work to stay healthy.
- Your Care Manager
Our Care Managers can help you to manage your physical or behavioral health care needs.
- Seeing a specialist
Your PCP may send you to a specialist for some of your care.
We may need to approve some services before you visit a provider.
