Insurers that want to sell plans through the federal exchanges for 2015 may have to do more to ensure members have access to adequate networks of providers. Participating health plans would be required to submit a list to the CMS of all in-network providers and medical facilities covered under a plan, according to a proposal detailed in a letter from the CMS on Tuesday. The CMS will review them, in conjunction with state regulators, to ensure that there is “reasonable access” to all types of providers.
