How We Choose Providers for Participation
Our networks were made to offer you a wide range of doctors close to home. Our goal is to give you primary care physicians within 30 minutes or 30 miles and specialty care providers within 60 minutes or 60 miles of your home. Providers for primary care, behavioral healthcare, and specialty healthcare are in all networks. No medical specialties* are excluded. All providers must meet high credentialing standards, but none are excluded based on measures of quality, member experience, or cost.
*Medical specialties as defined by the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Osteopathic Association
Our networks were built to give you access to hospitals in your area. We are always reviewing the number and location of hospitals in our networks and working to make sure you can use hospitals close to home. We do not use measures of quality, member experience, cost, or patient measures to exclude hospitals from our networks. All hospitals are required to pass a credentialing process, which includes an on-site survey.
