How Do I Pick a Doctor? Where Can I Find This Information?

When you shop for insurance at Healthcare.gov, each plan in the marketplace must publish a directory of the doctors and hospitals in its network. Or if you prefer a live person, you can call the marketplace hotline at (800) 318-2596, and a representative should be able to help you with the application process so you can pick a doctor.

 Some insurance companies have directories of their marketplace plans and networks on their own company websites, so you can check there, too. You can also find phone numbers for the insurance companies on their own websites.

But remember: Not all plans have the same networks, and it varies by region, so you might want to do some shopping around to make sure you find a doctor or hospital that’s right for you.
