As of 2015, a list of participating PHCS providers is available at PHCS.com, according to MultiPlan. PHCS plan participants must use the identifying logo on their benefits identification cards to select the correct logo displayed at the website, which gives them access to the provider list for their plans.
Plan participants seeking access to the provider list can choose only one logo, but if their ID cards include the words “Healthy Directions" or "Extended PPO," they can mark the box by itself, or mark the box and the logo on the ID card. Participants can choose to access a provider type, such as doctor, or a facility, such as a hospital or imaging center. Participants who need assistance should call the number on their ID cards to contact customer service, explains MultiPlan.
In October 2006, MultiPlan acquired Private Healthcare Systems and incorporated its preferred provider organization networks into MultiPlan, notes the company.
