The MultiPlan Network is a nationwide complementary provider network. Just as the name implies, the MultiPlan Network adds to the coverage of a primary PPO or a HMO/POS/EPO network by giving health plan participants an additional choice of providers at discounted rates. When participants seek care outside their primary network, they typically pay a higher coinsurance rate but share in the savings achieved by the network discount.
MultiPlan created the complementary network concept in 1980, recognizing the emerging trend toward multi-sited workforces and a growing mobility of health plan participants. More than 4,800 hospitals, 99,000 ancillary facilities and 700,000 healthcare professionals participate from all states. Approximately 39 million lives access the network.
