Covered Calif. Releases Draft List of Essential Community Providers
California Healthline

Covered California has released a draft list of “essential community providers” that are available to treat a large number of exchange enrollees, Payers & Providers reports.

The Affordable Care Act requires exchanges to provide a list of ECPs to address disparities in health care stemming from geography, income and other metrics (Payers & Providers, 7/10).

Covered California previously provided five separate lists of contact information for ECPs. The newly released draft list includes consolidated information from all five of the former lists.
