Evidence of Coverage (EOC)
The EOC is an important legal document that describes the relationship between CareSource and members of CareSource Advantage® Zero Premium (HMO), CareSource Advantage® (HMO), and CareSource Advantage Plus® (HMO). It serves as your contract with CareSource and describes your member rights, responsibilities and obligations. It also tells you how the plan works, the covered services you are entitled to, any conditions and limits related to covered services, the health care services that are not covered by the plan, and the annual deductible, copayments, and coinsurance you must pay when you receive covered services.

Prior Authorization List
Some services require prior authorization from CareSource. This means your doctor or health care provider must get approval from CareSource before you can get the service.
The Prior Authorization List shows which services need a prior authorization before you can get them.
Usually your primary care provider (PCP) will ask for prior authorization from us and then schedule these services for you. If you are seeing a specialist, he or she will get approval from your PCP. Then your services will be scheduled. If you have questions about the prior authorization process or status, please call Member Services.
Your provider can submit a request for a prior authorization using the Prior Authorization Request Form .
