Sharp Health Plan: Out of Area Care

Are you enrolled in Sharp Health Plan and need out-of-area care?

Here’s what you need to know about getting out-of-area care.
You are covered for emergency room and urgent care services outside the San Diego and Riverside county area. You or someone acting on your behalf should notify us or your doctor within 48 hours if you are admitted to a hospital, that way your medical history can be shared and your doctor can help coordinate your care.

Learn more about the care options for you and your loved ones when you are traveling or temporarily residing out of the San Diego coverage area.

Emergency travel services

When faced with a medical emergency while traveling 100 miles or more away from home or in another country, we can connect you to doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and other services.

Sharp Health Plan partners with Assist America to bring you key services including medical consultation, evaluation and referral, hospital admission assistance, emergency medical evaluation, medical monitoring, prescription assistance, compassionate visits and more.
