How can I access the Mexico Panel Provider Network?
Step 1: Once an employee and their dependent(s) have received coverage under UABT, they will then be able to access SAIN Medical Services.
Step 2: Employees will need to present a valid photo ID to the primary care doctor for coverage verification. If an employee does not have a photo ID available, they can request an ID at SAIN headquarters.
(Please note, all patients will be seen by a primary care physician before being referred to any specialist.)
