Open Access
All of the County’s health plans are Open Access which means members do not select a Primary Care Physician (PCP) and NO referral is needed in order to see most network specialists. Members are encouraged (but not required) to see a primary care or family medicine physician for routine care. Physicians listed under the Primary Care and Family Medicine category on have a lower copay/cost than physicians listed as a Specialist. Because it is not required that you obtain a referral to see a specialist, it is recommended you keep your primary/family physician up to date on any specialty care received so that all your personal health care information resides in one location.

All health plans have specific Exclusions and Limitations. Please contact the on-site UnitedHealthcare Reps for more information.

Plan​ Clinical Prior Authorization Program

Certain prescriptions require “clinical prior authorization,” or approval from your plan before they will be covered. The categories/medications that require clinical prior authorization may include but are not limited to: Acne (topical-after age 24), ADHD/Narcolepsy (after age 19), Botulinum Toxins, Lamisil/Sporanox, Obesity and Peniac. Upon receipt of a prescription falling into a covered category, Catamaran will contact your doctor’s office and request the documentation needed for Prior Authorization. 

Pharmacy Plan (UHC and CCP) - Specialty Drugs Only: HDHP Plans: Manufacturer copay/financial assistance is a great benefit to help pay for costly Specialty drugs. In the past, manufacturer assistance was applied outside of the plan and the actual cost paid by the member was not accurately applied to their annual health deductible and coinsurance accumulators. This was an unintended benefit due to pharmacy systems not being able to apply the manufacturer assistance first.  Effective January 1st, 2020, members using Specialty drugs through OptumRx (Briova) (UHC) will have the manufacturer assistance applied up front and only the actual amount a member pays out of pocket will be applied to their annual deductible or coinsurance accumulators.  Member will continue to receive the same financial assistance from the manufacturer; however, that assistance will now be incorporated into the member’s health deductible and coinsurance.
