NACCHO's Becoming an In-Network Provider: The Health Department Perspective
The public health system is transforming due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the decline in federal and state discretionary funds. Public health departments have started to seek alternative sources of revenue to continue providing services in their community. Many health departments are exploring billing for clinical services provided and are trying to become a contracted in-network provider with health plans.
NACCHO hosted a webinar titled “Becoming an In-Network Provider: The Health Department Perspective” where speakers from Mississippi, New York, and North Dakota shared their contracting experiences. The recording from this webinar is available and you can find the slides . Answers to the Q and A section are available here.
