Referrals, Prior Authorizations, Out-of-Network Care
Prior authorization is not required for most covered services delivered by Physicians Plus network providers. Prior authorization is required for out-of-network specialty services. Members must have their provider submit a prior authorization request to Physicians Plus before receiving care from out-of-network providers. Written decisions will be provided to members and providers. Visit pplusic.com for a summary of prior authorization requirements.
Qualified: Adams, Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Grant, Iowa, Jefferson, Juneau, Lafayette, Richland, Sauk and Waushara counties.
Emergency and Urgent Care Outside Service Area
If you require emergency or urgent care when outside of the network, seek care at the nearest medical facility. Contact your primary care physician or NursePlus at 1-866-775-8776 if assistance is needed to determine the appropriate level of care. Follow-up care must be received from an in-network provider unless otherwise approved by Physicians Plus.
Mental, Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse
Contact UW Behavioral Health at 608-417-4709 for prior authorization or provider information, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. A mental health professional will assess your situation and refer you to the appropriate provider. For emergencies, please contact your therapist directly or call 911.
