Schedule your annual well-visit with your primary care doctor
Your primary care doctor will provide your preventive and general care, keep track of your medical history and help you choose a specialist when you need one. Now that you have a new Medicare plan, it’s a great time to schedule your annual well-visit with your doctor.
You can verify that your PCP is correct, and select a new one if necessary, in your hap.org account or by calling customer service. While PPO members are not required to have a PCP, we encourage all members to build a relationship with a primary care physician.
You can also:
- Find other doctors, specialists and facilities that accept your HAP Medicare Plan
HAP Primary Choice and HAP Choice Medicare require a PCP referral for a specialist visit. All other plans do not require referrals.
- Search for participating pharmacies
Many of our plans include a $0 copay for tier 1 prescriptions when purchased at a Preferred pharmacy. You can use this tool to find both Preferred or Standard pharmacies.
Log in to your hap.org account for a personalized ‘Find a Doctor’ search based on your plan.
Use your Medicare Advantage extras
HAP Medicare Advantage plans have benefits built around your unique needs. This includes an over-the-counter allowance and vision, dental and hearing benefits.
These supplemental benefits are only available to HAP Medicare Advantage plan members.
Pay your premium
You’ll receive an invoice from HAP to confirm your enrollment. You can pay your premium by downloading and completing the automatic withdrawal form. You can also mail a check.
Most members receive invoices monthly.
If you sign up for automatic withdrawal, you will receive the first invoice and no subsequent invoices unless requested.
If you have a $0 Medicare Advantage plan, you will receive the first invoice and no subsequent invoices unless requested or if you have additional charges. Additional charges may include:
- Optional dental coverage premium
- A Late Enrollment Penalty: You may be required to pay a late enrollment penalty if you did not join a Medicare plan or have credible coverage when you became eligible. You will have to continue to pay this penalty, even if you change plans or health insurance carriers.
