Insurance Plans

If you are covered by Medicare, you will receive a new Medicare Number and card in the mail to help protect your identity. However, be aware of medical identity theft scams. Medicare will never call and ask you to provide personal or private information to get your new Medicare Number or card. Learn more.

Vanderbilt Health participates in the local and national health insurance plans listed below. It’s important to note that Vanderbilt may not participate in all products offered by an insurance carrier. We encourage you to contact your insurance company to verify your coverage for care at a Vanderbilt location. Several insurance carriers also include Vanderbilt in their individual plans.
