Referrals, Prior Authorizations, Out-of-Network Care

Referrals are not needed when receiving care from in-network providers. Prior authorization is required for certain services, procedures and for out-of-network providers before you receive care. You will receive written notification of the approval or denial for the prior authorization. If you are unsure if a service, test or procedure requires prior authorization or a referral, contact 1-800-883-2177 prior to the appointment or visit for a complete list.

Service Area

Qualified: Ashland, Barron, Burnett, Chippewa, Clark, Crawford, Douglas, Eau Claire, Jackson, La Crosse, Lincoln, Marathon, Monroe, Oneida, Pierce, Polk, Portage, Sawyer, St. Croix, Vernon and Washburn counties.
Non-qualified: Grant, Langlade, Pepin, Price, Rusk, Taylor, Trempealeau, Vilas and Wood 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. If you are admitted to the hospital, you can contact HealthPartners at 1-800-316-9807 for help with coordinating your care and claim submission. Follow-up care must be received from an in-network provider unless otherwise approved by HealthPartners.

Mental, Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse

No referrals are necessary to see in-network behavioral health providers.
