How do I know if my doctors will be covered by healthcare exchange insurance plans?


The insurance companies that sponsor the plans will list the doctors, hospitals and other providers in their networks on their websites and will have “800” phone numbers for questions. If you purchase a policy through an insurance exchange, the exchange’s website will include links to the website for each company. If you obtain coverage through an employer, the human resources department can provide you with information.
