With AmeriHealth, you get more than just health care benefits. We provide you with the information, tools and resources you need to make informed decisions about your health.

Network

AmeriHealth HMO offers one of the largest provider networks with nearly 9,500 primary care physicians, over 24,000 specialists, and over 230 hospitals. Our network includes providers from many medical fields in every county in New Jersey and Delaware, and Southeastern Pennsylvania. When you carry an AmeriHealth card, your health care coverage extends beyond your local service area. Away at school, on business, or pleasure - AmeriHealth HMO members have access to health care benefits for unexpected illness or emergency care, no matter where they are. Whatever the reason, you'll have peace of mind knowing you have access to the care you need.

Quality

AmeriHealth HMO is committed to quality care for our members, and reviews providers and their credentials before inviting them into our network. In recognition for our efforts, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has awarded AmeriHealth its accreditation status of "Excellent". This is the highest possible accreditation status that a HMO can receive for meeting the rigorous evaluation standards of the NCQA, a non-profit group that accredits managed care organizations.

Core Benefits and Special Services

AmeriHealth HMO covers doctor visits, specialty care, hospital services, and out-of-area coverage. Most visits are covered 100 percent after an applicable copayment. Our benefits include full preventive care services, including periodic health assessments, immunizations, routine gynecological care, and well baby/well child care. We also offer a preventive pediatric dental program for children under age 12.
