Health Plan Updates:
Fortified Provider Network will no longer be a plan, they will be ending their plans August 8, 2022.
Healthsmart Complete PPO has closed their panels to all providers. They are no longer accepting any providers through ASPA or through a direct contract.
Health Choice: ASPA will no longer be assigning an effective date for Health Choice plans, due to internal changes, Health Choice is no longer taking every provider. All new providers need to be reviewed by their contracting dept. who makes the final determination. We recommend that you reach out to the plan for new provider effective dates and do not see any Health Choice patients until you have confirmed there is an effective date assigned.
