Picking an OB/GYN
Female members may see an AmerHealth Caritas Louisiana obstetrician and/or gynecologist (OB/GYN) for women’s health needs. These services include well-woman visits, prenatal care (visits while you are pregnant), care for any female medical condition, and family planning. You do not need a referral to see an AmeriHealth Caritas Louisiana network OB/GYN doctor.
Well-woman visits are important for good health for adult women. Mammograms and cervical cancer screenings (Pap tests) are important steps in maintaining a woman’s health. Contact your PCP or OB/GYN doctor for help with well-woman visits and tests.
What to do if you think you are pregnant
If you think you are pregnant, call your PCP or OB/GYN doctor right away. It is very important you see your PCP or OB/GYN when you are pregnant. We call this "prenatal care." It helps you and your baby stay healthy.
If you do not have an OB/GYN doctor, contact Member Services at 1-888-756-0004 for help picking an OB/GYN doctor. While you are pregnant, your OB/GYN doctor can become your PCP.Visit the member portal to learn more about women's health. Take an online quiz and learn your risks.
