Provider Directory and Data Management
Effective January 1, 2022, Congress passed the No Surprises Act (NSA) which dictates how health plans (fully insured health plans, insurance carriers, and self-funded medical plans) and provider organizations communicate and share data. NSA requirements include:
- Attestation every 90 days. Providers must attest every 90 days to ensure provider demographic information is current and accurate. St. Luke’s Health Partners and BrightPath engage with a third-party vendor for advanced analytics that automatically flag stale, incomplete, or otherwise suspect directory data for follow up. Validation processes include on-demand human resolution, as well as closed-loop feedback interactions with participating providers. The database integrates seamlessly with the Provider Directory to ensure that directory updates are accurate, reliable, and compliant.
Out-of-compliance providers must be removed from Provider Directory. Providers that have not attested to their demographic information may be removed from the Provider Directory, in accordance with the NSA. The provider will remain an in-network provider but will not be visible in the Provider Directory.
