Provider Network Coverage Data Collection (CMS-10594)

OMB 0938-1302

OMB 0938-1302

Proposed §156.230(e)(1) would require that QHP issuers make a good faith effort to provide written notice of discontinuation of a provider 30 days prior to the effective date of the change or otherwise as soon as practicable, to enrollees who are patients seen on a regular basis by the provider or who receive primary care from the provider whose contract is discontinuing. This is a third-party disclosure requirement. CMS is not proposing to collect this notice from QHP issuers in FFMs, therefore we are not specifying ways in which we will use the data. The purpose of this notice is to provide consumers information on when their providers will no longer be available in-network in their QHP. In proposed 156.230(f)(2), we require QHP issuers to provide a notice to enrollees of the possibility of out-of-network charges from an out-of-network provider in an in-network setting at least 10 calendar days prior to the service being provided to avoid counting the out-of-network costs against to the annual limitation on cost sharing.
