Sanford Health Plan’s Signature Series broad network expands beyond the Sanford Health system for access to providers and facilities within the Sanford Health Plan service area. To receive in-network benefits, see providers in this directory. Prior authorization for certain services is still required, regardless of where you receive care.
If you or a dependent live outside of the Sanford Health Plan service area complete an Out-of-Area Form to request access to the nationwide network. If access is approved, nationwide network providers and facilities will process at the in-network benefit level.
Sanford Health Plan’s Simplicity broad network is grouped into two tiers. Member cost share (copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance) is based on the tier of the provider from whom they receive care. Tier 1 Preferred (which has the lowest member cost-share) includes our large care system of Sanford Health providers and facilities. Tier 2 Affiliated (which has a higher member cost-share) includes a broad network that expands beyond the Sanford Health system for providers and facilities within the Sanford Health Plan service area. To receive in-network benefits, see providers in this directory. Prior authorization for certain services is still required, regardless of where you receive care. If you or a dependent live outside of the Sanford Health Plan service area complete an Out-of-Area Form to request access to the nationwide network. If access is approved, nationwide network providers and facilities will process under Tier 2 benefits.
The focused network includes over 2,200 providers. This network provides access to Sanford Health providers and facilities, plus some additional independent providers across the Dakotas, Minnesota and Iowa. You can choose to see any licensed Sanford Health provider for covered services without a referral for in-network coverage.
This plan does not offer out-of-network coverage except in urgent and emergency situations.
