Denied Access to Insurance Panel Reporting

GPA Members,

There are a number of psychologists who have been unreasonably denied access to insurance panels and networks. Although our state has an Any Willing Provider law, it is neither well written nor consistently enforced.

If you have been unreasonably denied access to insurance panels and networks, I suggest that you immediately file a formal complaint with the Insurance Commissioner's office. A sample letter of complaint can be accessed by clicking here. If the insurance commissioner refuses to act on your behalf, please forward whatever correspondence you have about this denial to me. We will then compose a formal letter on behalf of GPA protesting the Commissioner's lack of action. We would also ask that if the insurance commissioner refuses to act on your behalf, you should contact both your state representative and your state senator about this lack of action. If, as we suspect will happen, the Insurance Commissioner refuses to act, we want to create as much awareness as possible in the legislature about this issue. Depending on the results of these actions, we may then pursue further legal or legislative action.

 

Thank you,

Frank Harbin, PhD
