Women’s Health Services

Direct Access to Women’s Health Services

Serra Medical Group assures that members have direct access to in network obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) and other women’s health services, including routine and preventive services.

Members do not need to obtain a referral prior to receiving OB/GYN care, preventive women’s health services/specialists, and/or specialist care services within the network

SCMC arranges for specialty care outside of the provider network when SCMC’s network providers are unavailable or inadequate to meet a member’s medical needs.


  • Members that need OB/GYN preventive care, are pregnant or have a gynecological concern, may self-refer to an OB/GYN physician, Family Practice Physician or Surgeon who provides such services within the network.
  • SCMC will assist members by providing a list of available physicians who can provide services.
  • The provider must consult with the member’s primary care physician regarding the members condition and treatment plan.
  • No prior authorization is needed to obtain the above services within SCMC’s network.
  • Members have a right to self-refer for a screening mammography.
