Important Notice About American Health Group and American Health Group Networks
 
 

The physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers that are part of networks organized by American Health Group are independent contractors who exercise independent medical judgment, and over whom American Health Group has no control or right of control. They are not agents or employees of American Health Group. When you or a covered family member select a primary care physician (PCP) or seek care from a physician, specialist, facility, or other healthcare professional in the network, either directly or by referral from another healthcare professional, you are seeking care from that healthcare professional and not from American Health Group. Your physician and other healthcare providers exercise independent medical judgment and should discuss treatment options with you, even those options that might not be eligible for benefits under your Certificate of Coverage or Group Plan. American Health Group is not responsible for, does not provide, and does not hold itself as the provider of your medical care.
