Quick Start Guide

Welcome to CareSource PASSE!

We are excited to have you as a CareSource PASSE member! We want to get you started enjoying your benefits right away. It’s easy!

Just follow these quick start steps:

Connect with your CareSource PASSE care coordinator

Your care coordinator is your main point of contact for all of your health care needs. Your care coordinator will reach out to you when you join CareSource PASSE. Please call Member Services if you have not heard from a care coordinator.

Get your CareSource PASSE member ID card

Your CareSource PASSE member ID card comes in your New Member Booklet. If you did not get a New Member Booklet, please talk to your care coordinator or call Member Services. Always keep your ID card with you. You will need it each time you see a provider or get your prescriptions.

Set up a visit with your primary care provider (PCP) soon after you enroll

If you already have a PCP, check if they are in the CareSource PASSE network. In-network providers are those who accept CareSource PASSE insurance. Your care coordinator can help you find providers in the CareSource PASSE network. You can also find the most up-to-date list of in-network providers in your Provider Directory, at findadoctor.caresource.com, or by calling Member Services.
