The Sutter Health Plus network is available to our members for all plans and products offered by Sutter Health Plus.
When you join Sutter Health Plus, you will choose a primary care physician (PCP). Your PCP provides most of your primary health care and coordinates care you may need from other providers. Your PCP will refer you as needed to providers for specialty care, X-ray, laboratory and other medical services. If you do not choose a PCP, we will assign one to you within a 15 mile radius from your residential address. When you choose your PCP, you are also selecting a medical group.
Many covered services, including visits to a specialist, require a referral or prior authorization from your medical group. Your PCP will make referrals to specialists within the same medical group. If you know you need specialty care and have a specific specialist in mind, check the directory to see what medical group the specialist is in. In certain situations, a specialist in the Sutter Health Plus network that is outside your medical group may also be available by referral. Make sure you choose your PCP within that medical group.
You can access emergency and urgent care when you need it from any facility, in or out of the Sutter Health Plus network, without a referral.
