AmeriHealth Caritas Delaware wants to be sure our members get the care they need for emergency and urgent problems.
AmeriHealth Caritas Delaware will pay for your care when you go to one of our health care providers. We call these providers our "network" providers. Network providers are providers that we have contracted with to provide health care services. You can find a network provider in Find a provider.
A provider who is not one of ours is called "out-of-network." If you go to one of these providers, you may have to pay for the care you get.
