Members or providers are required to pre-notify ShareNet for any of the following treatments to be eligible for sharing:

  • Cancer Treatment.
  • Non- Emergency Cardiac Procedures, e.g., heart ablation, angioplasty, and cardiac catheterization, etc. 
  • Inpatient/outpatient surgery.
  • Non-emergency hospital/facility admission.
  • Organ/Tissue Transplant Services.
  • Maternity.


Providers pre-notify by calling (877) 997-4273.

Pre-notification of medical bills does not guarantee eligibility or sharing.  Pre-notification enables ShareNet to inform the member about provider options and potential incentives available.

If a member or their provider does not pre-notify ShareNet the member may be subject to an additional AUA of $1,000 for the illness or event.
