New York's Health Plan Marketplace: QHP and ECP Resources
CMS/CCIIO"Non Exhaustive" List of Essential Community Providers(ECPs) On March 26, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Center for Consumer Information & Insurance Oversight released this "non exhaustive" list to assist health insurance plan issuers in locating essential community providers. Plan issuers will be permitted to write in ECPs not on the list.If you are not on the list, when you contact insurers you should let them know you are an ECP and that they can write you in.
Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) will be finalizing their networks in the next few months, but are not required to include all safety net providers in their networks. It is strongly recommended that you reach out to health insurers now if you want to be included in their networks for 2014.
