Where can I use MCSP coverage?

Most services are provided at the Placer County Medical Clinic. Placer MCSP will not reimburse for any out of county services provided to a Placer MCSP recipient unless authorized by Placer MCSP prior to receiving treatment.


Approval for all non-emergency treatment provided by outside providers (all services not provided by Placer County Medical Clinic) is subject to prior authorization. Placer County MCSP coverage does not cover visits to the Emergency Room for non-emergency reasons.
