WHAT IS THE PHCS NETWORK
MultiPlan’s PHCS Network is the only national independently-contracted primary PPO network to have been accredited by NCQA for credentialing – a status held continuously since 2001. The PHCS Network is available in a variety of configurations including outside the plan service area, to extend local HMO or PPO coverage nationally.
Beginning four decades ago as a New York hospital network, MultiPlan today has direct contracts with more than one million providers across the country through both the PHCS and MultiPlan Networks. Networks are becoming narrower and more value-based, but consumers and regulators continue to demand access to in-network providers wherever and whenever care is sought. MultiPlan contracts with over 1.2 million healthcare providers and facilities to add value to any healthcare payor’s network access strategy.
