ConnectiCare and EmblemHealth Team Up for Tristate Access


As a ConnectiCare provider, you may be able to see members from our affiliate company, EmblemHealth, if you are in the ConnectiCare Choice Network. ConnectiCare and EmblemHealth allow their members, in specific networks and plans, to access providers from both companies. This allows our members more choices, and the opportunity to get care where and when they need it.

This table shows the combinations of EmblemHealth networks and plans that have access to ConnectiCare’s Choice Network. This is in addition to expanded access available to members in the Bridge Program (see next article for more information on the Bridge Program).
