A referral is when your primary care provider (PCP) sends you to another provider for care. This care is often from a specialist. As an Amerigroup member, you don’t need a referral to see a provider who’s not your PCP as long as the provider works with your plan.

What is precertification?

Precertification is needed for:

  • Inpatient admissions
  • Certain behavioral health services like skills training
  • Psychological testing
  • Certain prescriptions
  • Rehabilitation therapies (physical, occupational, respiratory, speech)
  • Care from a provider who doesn’t work with your plan

As a member, you don’t make the request. Your PCP, specialist or other provider should send in the request. If your case doesn’t meet the rules for medically needed, we’ll send you a letter. The letter will tell you we could not OK the service and why.

Other benefit details can be found in your member handbook. If you have questions or would like a copy of your member handbook mailed to you, call Member Services at 1-800-600-4441 (TTY 711).
