How we build our network
To build our network, we look at how many primary and specialty care doctors are in a specific area. We also look at hospitals and other health care providers. This way we can make enough providers available to meet your health care needs. And, so you don’t have to go a long way or spend a lot of time getting there.
All doctors and hospitals must meet certain standards and agree to rates with us before joining our network.Hospitals
One of the ways we lower health care costs is by building networks with a focus on quality and cost. We evaluate and select hospitals for our networks using both quality and cost-efficiency measures. We measure quality using specific established standards. To measure cost efficiency, we compare each hospital to other hospitals in the area.Doctors
We choose our network doctors from multiple specialty types as well as primary care. Doctors must meet certain standards and agree to rates with us before joining our network. The standards used vary depending on the doctor’s specialty.
