You will need to select the name MCHA when you use our online provider search tools. Be sure to carry your ID card with you at all times so it's available whenever you need care.
Understand Your Benefits and Financial Responsibilities
When you receive your benefit information, it is important to review all documents to understand how the benefits work and your financial responsibility, including deductibles, coinsurance and your out-of-pocket costs. Be aware of how your out-of-pocket costs might change if you get care from a provider who is not in your network, or how you’re covered if you need care while traveling.
