Announcements & More

Clinical practice guidelines are the standards our doctors use to treat different kinds of health conditions. Doctors use these clinical practice guidelines to help them decide what care is best for your illness or condition. If you’d like a copy of our clinical practice guidelines, call Member Services at 1-800-600-4441 (TTY 711).

The Amerigroup medical director and our participating providers assess new medical advances (or changes to existing technology) in:

  • Medical procedures
  • Behavioral health procedures
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical devices

They also look at scientific literature and whether these new medical advances and treatments:

  • Are considered safe and effective by the government
  • Give equal or better outcomes than the covered treatment or therapy that exists now

They do this to decide if these advances are suited as covered benefits.
