First Health Access for PPO Members
First Health National PPO Network

Saint Mary’s Health Plans (SMHP) has selected First Health as the national PPO network for use outside of Nevada for all PPO members. First Health is an expansive national network that includes more than 5,000 hospitals, 550,000 physicians and 64,000 ancillary providers.

As with other PPO networks, it will always be the member’s responsibility to validate that a provider they are seeing is in the SMHP First Health Network.

Additionally, SMHP’s standard Prior Authorization requirements continue to apply when using a First Health provider for all non-urgent or non-emergent care.
