Consumers who want to learn which providers participate in which health plans now have an online tool to quickly help them with their research. The NYS Provider & Health Plan Look-Up includes information on physicians and hospitals that participate in the New York State of Health Marketplace, including Qualified Health Plans, the Essential Plan, Child Health Plus and Medicaid Managed Care. According to NY State of Health Executive Director Donna Frescatore: “Consumers have told us that knowing which providers are in a health plan’s network is one of the most important factors in selecting a health plan and accessing services after enrollment. This tool will be immediately available to the more than 3.6 million people who have enrolled in coverage through NY State of Health and available soon to all insured individuals in New York.” Consumers can access the NYS Provider & Health Plan Look-Up in English and Spanish at http://pndslookup.health.ny.gov. For information on getting started, a tutorial video can be accessed. In addition, every consumer applying for coverage through NY State of Health will be able to utilize the tool at the time they select their health plan. The New York State look-up tool, viewed as a prototype for similar applications across the nation, was developed by IPRO’s Health Informatics Department.
