Care in an emergency or disaster
Getting medical care & prescription drugs in disaster or emergency areas
If the Governor of California, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, or the President of the United States declares a state of disaster or emergency in Monterey County, you can still get medical care and prescription medications from Aspire Health Plan.
Generally, during a disaster or emergency, Aspire Health Plan will allow you to obtain medical care from out-of-network providers at in-network cost-sharing rates without prior authorization requirements. In cases where payment is required up front for the out-of-network care you may submit a request for reimbursement to the plan.
Aspire Health Plan has a national network of pharmacies available to fill prescriptions for medications. If you cannot use a network pharmacy during a disaster, you may be able to fill your prescription drugs at an out-of-network pharmacy. In cases where payment for the cost of the drugs is required at the time the prescription is filled you may submit a request for reimbursement to the plan.
For more information on how to obtain needed care and medications during a disaster or emergency please call the Aspire Health Plan customer service team toll free at 855-570-1600(TTY users call 711), 8 am to 8 pm PST Monday through Friday (except certain holidays) from April 1 through September 30 and 8 am to 8 pm PST seven days a week for the period of October 1 through March 31.
