Where can I find a (vision, dental, etc) provider in my area?
- For Anthem
network medical providers, you will only need to find them if it is deemed
medically necessary by your Primary Care Provider (PCP) in the case that you
need your referral written to a specific network provider.
non-emergency medical services must be initiated at The Ashe Center. Students
are automatically assigned a Primary Care Provider (PCP) who is either a
licensed physician or registered nurse. You must obtain a written referral
authorization from your PCP prior to incurring outside expenses. An Ashe
referral will be written when medical care is not available at The Ashe Center
or if a specialist is needed. UC SHIP will not pay for services rendered
without an authorized referral and The Ashe Center does not grant retroactive
referrals. You can submit your referral request during your appointment with
your PCP, make an appointment specifically for a referral from your PCP, or
send a secure message through the Patient Portal to your PCP, allowing 1-2
business days for an appropriate response. Referrals are not needed for vision
or dental care, emergency room or urgent care visits.
- If you are
interested in receiving services that are not available at The Ashe Center from
a particular Anthem network provider, you may visit Anthem’s website at www.anthem.com. Afterwards,
please inform your PCP during your appointment or via secure messaging before
making any appointment with the outside provider. Your Ashe clinician will
first determine if it is medically necessary for an outside referral.
