Welcome to Amerigroup Washington! We're happy you’re here.
As a new member, we know you have questions and we want you to get the most out of your benefits. Here are some tips to help you get started with your new health plan.
1. Look for your member ID card
You should have received your Amerigroup member ID card in the mail. You’ll use it to go to the doctor, to get prescriptions and in case of an emergency. If it’s been more than two weeks since you enrolled and you didn’t get your card, give us a call at 1-800-600-4441 (TTY 711).
2. Make an appointment with your PCP
Your main doctor is called a primary care provider, or PCP. Your PCP is listed on your ID card and in your online account. Call to make an appointment with your PCP as soon as you can. Getting a checkup now will help your PCP learn about your medical history before any health issues occur.
