Specialist Authorization Changes – Medicare Advantage Plans Only
GlobalHealth no longer require prior authorizations for specialist office visits. Members have direct access to set up an office visit appointment with a specialist physician.
Services rendered or referred by specialist physicians require prior authorizations. Services include, but are not limited to: outpatient surgery, physical therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, Part B drugs, and specialized diagnostic tests such as MRIs. These are only examples. Please refer to the plan Evidence of Coverage or call Customer Care if you have any questions about whether a service requires prior authorization.
Please note that this only applies to Medicare Advantage plans – Generations Classic (HMO), Generations Select (HMO), Generations Value (HMO), Generations Classic Choice (HMO-POS), and Generations State of Oklahoma Group Retirees (HMO). All other plans will continue to have the same prior authorization process as is in place today. There are no changes to the specialist authorization requirements for GlobalHealth’s commercial products.
GlobalHealth is introducing a new HMO-POS plan type in 2021, Generations Classic Choice.
Members will have access to some out-of-network services:
- Inpatient admissions
- Some outpatient hospital services

GlobalHealth has been a provider- and member-centric organization since its beginning in the state of Oklahoma. The health plan was started by a group of primary care physicians who were passionate about improving patient outcomes and controlling healthcare spend by focusing on patient service and quality outcomes.
GlobalHealth plans are designed to encourage members to receive proper healthcare while reducing out-of-pocket expenses. We align our plans with strong benefits, including $0 unlimited primary care physician visits, and most plans have no medical or drug deductibles.
