Our Services

Solving problems like these are our specialty

Do I need a referral? A prior approval?

We'll sit down and review the details of your situation, work out next steps and actively support you in getting the care you need.

I have many doctors giving me directions. Sometimes it feels overwhelming.

We'll help you make sense of it all and our care managers will work to make sure that your doctors are all on the same page.

How do I keep all my medicines straight so I know when to take them?

Our pharmacy specialist will guide you and double-check the meds you have been prescribed.

Things are tight right now. Can you help me keep costs affordable?

We understand. We're pretty creative at helping you make the most of your benefits and finding resources without sacrificing care.

I know I need to see my doctor regularly, but I don't have a way to travel to her office.

We can connect you with local organizations that offer help with rides to and from your doctor.

I'm new to EmblemHealth and I'm not sure if my coverage is effective yet.

Our concierges can confirm your start date, take you on a personalized tour of your health coverage and explain all it offers.

I'm having trouble with claims.

We will actively help you to resolve any issues and show you how to avoid them in the future.

I need help finding a doctor.

We'll chat — and find out what works best for you — before presenting you with choices.
