Routine gynecological services (including pap smears, an annual check-up and mammography screening when appropriate) are available to all female members of the Plan. When using In- Plan benefits, you may receive these services from your Primary Care Provider or you can go to the AHP participating gynecologist or obstetrician/gynecologist of your choice. The list of participating OB/GYN’s is included in the AHP Provider Directory. If you choose to go to an OB/GYN for primary and preventive gynecological care, you are entitled to two (2) visits per year without a referral. In addition, you may self-refer for any follow-up services required as a result of such visits or an acute gynecological condition.
When using In-Plan benefits, you may select the participating AHP Obstetrician or Certified Nurse Midwife of your choice to provide all care necessary during the course of your pregnancy and delivery.
Hospice services are a covered benefit, whether the services are provided directly at the hospice or through the hospice on an outpatient basis, for up to 210 days. Up to five (5) visits are provided for bereavement counseling for family members.
