Does First Choice Cover Inpatient Rehab?

First Choice Health will provide coverage for inpatient rehab if using a provider or facility within its network. The coverage amount will differ depending on the treatment location and your policy.

You can determine the estimated cost of inpatient rehab by using First Choice’s Cost and Quality overview or by calling the number on the back of your member ID card.

Does First Choice Cover Outpatient Care?

First Choice Health covers outpatient care if you choose from its network of providers. Coverage will depend on your plan and the location, duration and type of treatment.
