Is Lurie Children's Hospital in any individual networks for 2020?
No. Unfortunately Lurie Children's hospital only accepts employer or state-based(medicaid/CHIP) health insurance plans or a short-term plan from National General that uses the Aetna Open Access PPO network.
None of the health plans offered on the Illinois Exchange in 2019/2020 include Lurie Children’s in their networks.
How can we get care at Lurie Children’s?
Check to see if you can get coverage through your employer.
Check to see if your child qualifies for Medicaid/All Kids. Contact the Patient Innovation Center at 312.967.9200.
Check with your child’s primary care physician regarding options.
If you choose an Exchange plan, you will need a prior authorization of services from that plan.
Without a prior authorization your child’s care at Lurie Children’s would be out-of-network. This means that it is very likely you will be responsible for most or all of the costs.
