What’s New for 2017
GHC-SCW members are now able to integrate their Fitbit device with their GHC MyChart electronic medical record. This integration will allow your Primary Care Provider to see if you are reaching your fitness goals. If you do not have a GHC MyChart account, please visit ghcscw.com to sign up.
You can get a diagnosis and prescription in just a few minutes at virtuwell, your 24/7 online clinic. GHC-SCW members get three virtuwell visits for free per year, unless you are enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan. Enrollees of the High Deductible Health Plan must first meet their annual deductible before being eligible for free virtuwell visits. Visit ghcscw.com for more information.
Go to ghcscw.com, click on “Find a Provider,” select “Primary Care” and click on the “State and WPEG Employee Provider Directory” on the right hand navigation bar. To request a printed directory be mailed to you, call Member Services at 1-800-605-4327, ext. 4504.
Referrals, Prior Authorizations, Out-of-Network Care
Your primary care provider will submit a referral request to GHC-SCW Care Management Department when you need to receive services outside of a GHC-SCW clinic or through a specialty care area. Certain procedures or tests also require a prior authorization for medical necessity review. You will receive a letter from GHC-SCW, as well as notification in your GHCMyChartSM account, letting you know if the referral/prior authorization has been approved.
