Introducing Prime Access for Health Plan Members
Prime Access allows Ohio State Health Plan members to see healthcare providers in a timely fashion, in most cases within two to three weeks (at select locations).
In order to access an appointment held for Health Plan members, simply call one of the telephone numbers below and let the scheduler know that you are a member. They will take it from there!
(How long does it usually take to get in to see a new healthcare provider? It typically takes four to six weeks to get in to see a healthcare provider as a new patient. We think that’s too long, which is why we’ve developed Prime Access for our Health Plan members. We can’t always promise two to three weeks (or sooner), but we’re doing everything we can to whittle down the wait time for our members.)

OSU Health Plan Prime Access Participating Specialties
Ohio State specialties participating in Prime Access include the following.
Primary Care (both General Internal Medicine and Family Medicine)
Whether you need care for colds and flu, treatment of minor injuries, routine physical exams, health screenings or immunizations, continued care for chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease, or referrals to specialized care, Ohio State primary care physicians can put you on the path to a healthier life.
For sick visits, same-day appointments are often available within a practice; a scheduler can help you secure that appointment as well.
