CU GME Health Plan Required Notices:
Final determination of a claim is possible only when the actual claims for services rendered is received and reviewed. Any oral or written statement or representation that alters, modifies, amends or is inconsistent with the written terms of the Plan is invalid and unenforceable.
This plan does not require PCP selection, however, residents are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to establish care with a PCP. This will improve access to care should you become ill or have an injury, may help avoid an ER visit, etc. Many PCP providers have same day access when immediate care is necessary. Residents should seek medical attention when needed and know how to do so BEFORE an urgent situation arises.
Residents are not allowed to provide treatment or prescribe medication that is self prescribed, prescribed by one resident for another, prescribed by resident for a family member, or prescribed by resident for a family member of another resident.
