  • As a patient, finding a doctor in-network on your health plan can make a big difference when it comes to out of pocket costs.
  • For insurers and the doctors they contract with, finding a better way to keep provider lists up to date, could make a big difference when it comes to administrative costs.
  • From the perspective of the provider organizations … (they) can work with up to dozens of insurance plans, and each of the plans are individually requesting or verifying the provider information, said Mike Jacobs, senior distinguished engineer with UnitedHealth Group’s Optum division.
  • The insurers will launch the new program this summer, along with Quest Diagnostics and health insurance consultants at Multiplan, to see whether they can cut costs by sharing data and reduce the administrative burden of keeping lists accurate.
  • Regulators at CMS, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, may start fining Medicare insurers up to $25,000 a day for inaccurate provider lists, so it’s a problem the industry is anxious to resolve for their doctors, their patients and their bottom lines.
