HealthChoice also provides Network reimbursement to rural health clinics, federally qualified health centers, Veterans Health Administration facilities, military facilities, city/county health departments and Indian Health Services facilities.
Contracts and applications can be obtained online through a link on the HealthChoice Network Provider website, www.healthchoiceok.com/Providers/Contracts_and_Applications/index.html or by contacting the HealthChoice Network Management Unit.
HealthChoice also accepts completed Oklahoma Uniform Credentialing Applications (OUCA) and OUCA supplements as HealthChoice applications for individual practitioners when accompanied by the applicable credentialing attachments and signed signature page required by the provider contract.
The Network contracts require Network Providers to make a reasonable effort to refer HealthChoice members and their dependents to other Network Providers when additional consults are necessary. EGID believes this referral process is in the best interest of the Plan member and within the dictates of good medical practice. Plan members cannot realize the full benefit of their HealthChoice Plan unless they utilize Network Providers.
