McLeod does not require the designation of a primary care provider. You do not need prior authorization from McLeod or from any other person (including a primary care provider) in order to obtain access to obstetrical or gynecological care from a health care professional in our network who specializes in obstetrics or gynecology. The health care professional, however, may be required to comply with certain procedures, including obtaining prior authorization for certain services, following a pre-approved treatment plan, or making referrals. For a list of participating health care professionals who participate in the McLeod Provider Network to include those who specialize in obstetrics or gynecology go to Smart@Work On-line located in the center panel of the Compass or contact the HR Service Center at 843-777-2595. You can also visit www.SouthCarolinaBlues.com to review the list of approved providers through the BCBS Provider Network.
McLeod does not exclude or limit a benefit based on a condition that a participant has prior to enrolling in a McLeod plan.
