Specialty Care & Out-of-State Referrals

Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md., the UK HealthCare, clinical arm of the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Ky., and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, are preferred providers for out-of-state services not available in West Virginia. Members covered by Plans A, B and C must receive prior authorization from UMR for any out-of-state admission.

Members covered by Plan D, the West Virginia-only plan, can receive only emergency out-of-state care to stabilize the patient for transport back to a West Virginia facility. Only a limited number of procedures not available from any West Virginia provider are permitted from out-of-state providers for Plan D members and require prior authorization from UMR. Non-emergency care provided outside of West Virginia without approval from UMR is not covered.
