What is the difference between In-Network and Out-of-Network Providers

Insurance carriers will designate a provider as either in-network or out-of-network:

  • An in-network provider is a doctor, specialist, etc. that has contracted with the insurance carrier to participate in a specific network, typically at a lower cost.
  • An out-of-network provider is any provider who does not belong to the carrier's network
