Hospital Privileges

We recommend that you maintain hospital privileges at more than one institution in the area. Payers require that we have privileges at a hospital in order to stay active on a given insurance plan. If a hospital is in contract disputes with a payer and is out-of-network even temporarily, you will not be able to see patients on that plan even if your practice is partially or wholly outpatient.  Having a second hospital at which you have privileges protects against this eventuality, which has happened before.
