As a Bright Health member, you get access to an exclusive network of healthcare providers designed to offer a higher level of coordinated care and attention.
Together, with our network of primary care providers (PCPs) and specialists, we help ensure you get the care you need. Our robust network of doctors and Bright Medicare Advantage plan benefits help take the worry out of your healthcare, so you can focus on staying healthy.
When you chose a Bright Health Medicare Advantage plan, you were granted access to an extensive network of Mercy Health Hospitals and Mercy Health Select providers. When you see an in-network provider you keep your out-of-pocket costs down. In most cases, if you choose to see an out-of-network (OON) provider, services will not be covered by your plan and you will be responsible for the full cost of that service. If you have a Bright Advantage Flex or Bright Advantage Flex Plus plan, some OON services are covered. Check your Summary of Benefits or Evidence of Coverage for details on services covered.
However, if you need OON emergency services, out-of-area urgently needed services, or out-of-area dialysis services, we’ve still got you covered.
Bright Health's coordinated network of providers also allows for your providers to get to know you and your health history, so you get the personalized care you deserve.
Do you know when to see your primary care provider instead of a specialist? Or when to go to the urgent care versus the emergency room (ER)? Your PCP is there for you to help navigate your care. If your PCP is not available or you need care more urgently, you have other options:
Using your PCP as your first line of support, helps ensure your care is relevant and on-target. Your PCP will work together with Bright Health and your healthcare team to coordinate your care for your best health outcome.
