SANUS HEALTH takes pride in its efforts to direct our clients’ members to providers who participate in The SANUS HEALTH Network. We use a variety of measures to make members aware of the hospitals, primary care physicians, specialists, freestanding X-ray, ambulatory surgery centers and other types of ancillary health care professionals that are available.
Sanus Health channels members to network providers when they contact us by telephone. Provider information also is made available in print and through access to electronic directories when compatible/available:
