Wheelchair Pilot Program
This is just a friendly reminder to our referring providers who need to submit a new request on behalf of a PHC member for wheelchair related items or specialty items, that we have launched a new process to streamline these requests for members within our core counties for Solano, Napa, and Yolo.
Found on our website at www.partnershiphp.org you may download the In-Home Requisition Form and submit the completed form directly to PHC via fax at 707-863-4118, rather than submitting the request to a DME Provider.
Upon receipt Partnership HealthPlan will make arrangements for an in-home assessment to be completed. This process will help reduce the authorization wait time for both members and network providers, and overall improve member satisfaction! We thank you for your continued support of our members and support of this new process.
