Seeing a Specialist
A specialist is a doctor who practices a certain area of medicine. Your PCP is trained to treat most medical problems. However, there may be times when you need to see a doctor who is a specialist. The PCP will help you decide when to see a specialist and will help you see an AmeriHealth Caritas Florida specialist. AmeriHealth Caritas Florida covers your visits to contracted specialists in our network without prior authorization. There is no limit to how many times you may see the specialists.
Always check with your PCP before going to a specialist. Women and girls can go to an OB/GYN at any time. For a list of AmeriHealth Caritas Florida specialist doctors, call Member Services toll-free at 1-855-355-9800 (TTY 1-855-358-5856).
