What does medically necessary mean?
We cover services prescribed by a doctor to treat or diagnose an injury or illness, which means things like cosmetic or elective procedures may not be covered. Whether something is medically necessary is determined by Sidecar Health. Please refer to your coverage details in the member portal to see what is covered under your plan. If you have any questions about whether a service is medically necessary or covered, please call our Member Care team at 877-653-6440.
