Any Willing Provider A term used to describe legislation that requires a health plan to accept on its provider panels every physician, hospital or other practitioner that wants to participate in the health plan's products.
Any Willing Provider Laws Laws that require managed care plans to contract with all health care providers that meet their terms and conditions.
Appeal Process The process you use if you disagree with any decision about your health care services. If Medicare does not pay for an item or service you have been given, or if you are not given an item or service you think you should get, you can have the initial Medicare decision reviewed again. If you are in the Original Medicare Plan, your appeal rights are on the back of the Explanation of Medicare Benefits (EOMB) or Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) that is mailed to you from a company that handles bills for Medicare. If you are in a Medicare managed care plan, you can file an appeal if your plan will not pay for, or does not allow or stops a service that you think should be covered or provided. The Medicare managed care plan must tell you in writing how to appeal. See your plan's membership materials or contact your plan for details about your Medicare appeal rights.
