Referrals, Authorizations, Out-of-Network
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 prior to receiving care. When a referral or prior authorization is requested, you will receive a written notification of the approval or denial. If you are unsure if a service, test or procedure requires prior authorization or a referral out of the network, contact 1-866-421-3992 prior to your appointment and/or service.
MAHP recognizes UW Health | University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) as a preferred referral center when care cannot be provided by an in-network provider. Prior authorization would be required for any services provided by UWHC.
Emergency and Urgent Care
If you require emergency or urgent care when outside of the network, seek care at the nearest medical facility. Contact Member Services at 1-866-421-3992 or your primary care physician 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 MAHP.
Mental, Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse
No prior authorization or referral is required for outpatient services from a MAHP in-network provider. Prior authorization may be required for inpatient services and transitional care. For additional details and services, contact 1-866-421-3992
