The Advantages of SelectHealth

With SelectHealth, you get easy access to a wide variety of specialists in HIV and transgender care at hospitals, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and community physician groups. You will also find excellent specialists in other fields of medicine including cardiology, dermatology, pulmonary medicine, or endocrinology. Your dependent children can also enroll in the plan with you.

Plus, as a member of SelectHealth, you may be eligible for behavioral health home- and community-based services, including treatment for mental health and substance use.

And there are many other important reasons to consider enrolling.
