How can I start seeing an Optum Care Network doctor?
Optum Care Network doctors accept many HMO plans. If you want to see an Optum Care Network doctor, there are a few steps you’ll need to take.
- Call your plan. You can find the phone number on the back of your plan member ID card. (If you have an employer plan, ask for the benefits administrator.)
- Ask if the plan's network choices include Optum Care Network–Monarch in its network. If it doesn’t, say you want to switch to Optum Care Network–Monarch. Note: You can switch networks once a month.
- If yes, choose from hundreds of primary care doctors in the Optum Care Network–Monarch network.
