This article is intended for HMO members enrolled in an employer health insurance plan.

BlueLincs HMOSM members are required to get preauthorization or precertification for services that are not done by your primary care physician (PCP).

All specialty care must be approved in advance by your PCP. And any follow-up care must be coordinated by your PCP. If you decide to see a specialist or another health care provider without getting preauthorization, you will be responsible for all charges.

For more information, call the customer service number on your member ID card.
