What is an In-Network Provider for Rehab?
When a provider is designated as in-network, it is part of a health plan’s network of providers that it has established a discount with. People under the plan usually pay less when using an in-network provider than someone out-of-network. 1
The rehab has a contract with the insurance company that requires it to accept the insurer’s payment as a full payment. Some health plans will only pay for services when a member uses an in-network provider, so it is always best to check where your plan falls.
Plan Types that Use In-Network Providers
Several types of insurance plans use in-network providers. 2 These are:
Health Maintenance Organization (HMO)
HMOs typically have lower premiums than other types of plans, but you may be more limited to the provider network that you have access to. You will most likely need a primary care physician for all referrals.
Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)
These plans have preferred providers that have already been chosen for you to use. While it’s often preferred to stay in-network, you can go to an out-of-network provider.
Point of Service (POS)
These plans typically require members to choose a primary care physician within the network, but you can still go to an out-of-network provider, which may cost you more.
Benefits of Using an In-Network Provider
Choosing an Aetna Contracted Rehab Provider such as Clear Life Recovery has its benefits. These include:
Services Provided at a Lower Rate: Since providers are part of a network, they are contracted to charge a fixed price for services.
Higher Quality Standards: In-network providers are held to quality standards for plan members so you can feel confident that you are receiving quality care.
Reduce out-of-pocket medical expenses: Since you are visiting an in-network provider, the amount of money you’re responsible to pay should be less.
