What you should know before accessing services

The Sharp Health Plan alternative care and wellness product discount offerings are administered by ASH. The program is not insurance and in some cases is not a covered benefit of your medical health plan. If you have access to any of these services as covered benefits under another plan or policy, you should exhaust those benefits before using Sharp Health Plan's services. Your costs for these services do not count toward your deductible or out-of-pocket maximum through Sharp Health Plan, unless they are included in your medical benefit plan. Any disputes regarding these products and services may be subject to Sharp Health Plan's and/or ASH's grievance process. Sharp Health Plan and Best Health do not have any financial ownership arrangements with ASH.
