Care & Coverage Updates

If you are in one of the impacted counties, FirstCare will:
  • Authorize payment for necessary emergency and non-emergency services, medical equipment and supplies;
  • Lift provider network restrictions so members can get necessary health and dental services out-of-network, and extend any claim-filing deadlines as needed;
  • Authorize payment for up to a 90-day supply of covered prescriptions and/or remove restrictions on refilling too soon.
  • Coordinate with state regulatory agencies, such as Texas Medicaid, to ensure that members continue to receive services.
NOTE:  These actions remain in effect through the duration of the Governor's disaster declaration.

Contact FirstCare Customer Service with any questions.
