How to find a network provider?

It can sometimes be difficult to find a provider that is accepted by your Insurance Company.  Meaning they are a Network Provider whether you are in an HMO, PPO, etc.   Even in a PPO, you get paid best when using a Network Provider.

See our provider finders on your right if you have a full screen monitor or scroll down if you are on a smart phone.

5 comments on “Provider – Doctor & Hospital Finder

  1. What does it mean, when the provider list says, doctor not accepting new patients?

    They’re saying I’m a new patient because I just signed on with them as my insurance and that my doctor isn’t taking new patients. That’s nonsense. I’ve been with her 12 years.
