ChildNet Medical Associates provides its physicians and members a network of shared knowledge and experiences, contracting facilitation, credentialing with health plans, and payor/provider network support.
ChildNet’s Network Participation Agreement (NPA) provides members with access to a variety of health plans and payors. In addition, providers have access to value-added services such as a Group Purchasing Program. The NPA covers both individual and group practice arrangements; exhibits attached to the NPA define these relationships.
