Find a doctor

Due to COVID-19, some provider offices may be closed or have different hours. Please call the office to confirm.

We encourage the use of telehealth for healthcare services when appropriate (not just those related to COVID-19).

Keeping your relationship with your primary care provider (PCP) is important. Telehealth is a great way to stay in touch with your PCP when you need care anytime.

If your current PCP can’t offer a telehealth visit, please visit LiveHealth Online (LHO). LHO offers free, easy-to-access medical and behavioral healthcare. LHO shouldn’t take the place of your PCP.

In an emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room (ER).

Use our provider directory to find providers, hospitals and more. If you want to change your PCP, use this tool to find the name of the new PCP you want. You can search for:

  • Primary care providers (PCP)
  • Specialists
  • Mental health providers
  • Hospitals
  • Laboratories
  • Facilities

Prior authorization, referrals, reporting inaccurate information, and assistance

Prior authorization

Preapproval is sometimes called preauthorization. Some Healthy Blue services and benefits require preapproval. This means that you and/or your provider must ask Healthy Blue to approve those services or benefits before you get them.

For more information about services that need preapproval, please see your member handbook.


For some services, you’ll need a referral from your primary care provider (PCP) before getting care.

A referral is when your PCP sends you to another provider for care. When a referral is needed, your PCP will sign a referral form and send you to a provider who works with Healthy Blue.

Pharmacy and prescription drugs

CarelonRx provides your pharmacy benefit. When you need to fill your prescriptions, you must go to a pharmacy that works with Healthy Blue. Our pharmacy benefit covers a wide range of prescriptions and over-the-counter medicines.

Getting your prescriptions filled is easy!

Simply present the written prescription from your doctor to a pharmacy in our network. Or, your doctor can send your prescription directly to the pharmacy you choose. When you pick up your medicine, you’ll need to show the pharmacy your Healthy Blue member ID card and your Medicaid ID card.

It’s good to use the same pharmacy each time. This way, your pharmacy will know all the medicines you are taking and can watch for problems that may occur. If you use a new pharmacy, you should tell the pharmacist about any medicines you’re taking.
