How to search for an
If you are unable to visit the campus health center, you should use providers in the PPO network whenever possible.
It is best to locate an in-network doctor, urgent care center, and emergency room near you before you get sick. To find a PPO provider, call (800) 226-5116 or visit the First Health website (link below).
- From the “Locate a Provider” screen, select Start Now.
- Select the Type of Provider. Under Search by start by entering your ZIP code and then select a distance.
- (Optional) If you would like to select by specialty, procedure, or other options, click on Show More Options.
- Click Search now. Select a provider from the generated listing.
Always check with the doctor or medical facility directly to confirm that they accept First Health before you receive treatment.
Pharmacy benefits are managed by Express Scripts. Express Scripts pharmacies include CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart. Please see the Express Scripts website (link below) to find a pharmacy near you, or call (800) 400-0136; Pharmacy Help Desk (800) 922-1557.
To fill a prescription, visit any Express Scripts pharmacy and pay the copay. If you visit a non-network provider, you will need to pay for the prescription in full and then submit a claim for reimbursement.
Get your medical bills paid
If your provider files the claim on your behalf:
- The claims administrator still requires certain information from you. You will need to fill out a form indicating whether or not you have other insurance coverage. You will need to do this only once per academic year. You can find the Other Insurance Coverage Form below.
- You will receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) that outlines what the insurance company paid and what is your responsibility to pay, if applicable. The claims administrator will contact you if they need other information; otherwise, they will pay the claim as indicated on the EOB. Do not ignore calls or letters from the claims administrator, as this may delay payment of your claim.
If the provider does not file a claim directly with the insurance company on your behalf, you will need to submit a claim for reimbursement for the portion of the charges the company is responsible for paying by completing these steps:
- Download a claim form below and fill it out completely.
- Include your policy number (as shown on your ID card) on the claim form.
- Attach bills for X-rays, lab charges, etc.
- Send your claim form and all bills pertaining to this claim to Administrative Concepts, Inc. at the address below. Try to have all itemized bills attached to the same claim form.
