Lawmakers Should Work With Insurers, Providers To Address Provider Network List Errors, Editorial Argues
A Los Angeles Times editorial argues, "Regulators should work with insurers and providers to come up with ... a mechanism, along with a better incentive" to reduce the number of errors in provider network lists for health plans sold through California's health insurance. It adds, "Ultimately, the solution for both groups is the same: developing an automated way to update provider lists to track the changes in doctors' locations, plan affiliations and ability to accept new patients."
