Other Services

Self Referral

VHP contracts with its Plan Providers. Based on your Primary Care Physician’s Network, you may self-refer to some specialists. Please contact your PCP’s office directly. You may obtain Covered Services through direct access (self-refer) from a Plan OB/GYN and/or through direct access from a Plan family practice physician and surgeon (Plan Provider).​

Acupuncture​

​Valley Health Plan covers you for Acupuncture Services when your Primary Care Physician (PCP) prescribes it as medically necessary. Your PCP must process a referral before you receive services. Once approved by VHP, you will receive a copy of the authorization so you can receive the authorized visits with a VHP Network Acupuncturist. If you seek services without a referral from your PCP or seek services at a non-VHP provider, you may be responsible for all charges. Coverage is limited to a maximum of twenty (20) visits per Calendar Year.  You will be asked to pay a $10.00 co-payment at the time of each visit.
