I am hearing from many patients that in 2018 they won't be able to use their insurance to see me because I'm "not in their new network." I've heard this regarding ACA plans and also employer-based plans.  Increasingly networks are narrowing and patients can only go to one specific larger institution.  I'm wondering how others in small practices are navigating this? Any luck trying to get in preferred networks with insurers like Regence or Premera?
