Most health plans give you the best deal on services when you see a doctor who has a contract with your health plan. While you may be able to see doctors who don’t contract with your plan, visiting an “in-network” provider usually means you’ll have lower out-of-pocket costs.
To find out if your doctors and other health care providers are covered by your new Marketplace plan, or to find a covered provider if you don’t have one yet:
Visit your health plan’s website and check their provider directory, which is a list of the doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers that your plan contracts with to provide care.
See your health plan’s provider directory. You can get this by contacting your plan, visiting the plan’s website, or using a link that you’ll find on the plan description in your Marketplace account.
Call your insurer to ask about specific providers. This number is on your insurance card and the insurer’s website.
Call your doctor’s office. They can tell you if they accept your health plan.
Yes. If your health insurance company doesn’t pay for a visit to the doctor, you have the right to appeal the decision and have it reviewed by an independent third party. Learn about the appeals process.
