The Network Adequacy Report Has Been Released for Pennsylvania

By law, health plans must provide their members with reasonable access to in-network providers and services. Yet many Pennsylvanians face delays of months or even years in scheduling appointments as well as excessively long driving distances to treatment locations. The Pennsylvania Health Action Network (PHAN) released a new report, Healthcare Network Inadequate to Serve All: Causes and Solutions in Pennsylvania, which discusses what happens when health plan networks are inadequate to serve their members, why this happens, and what the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania can do about it.
