[Opinion]
Feb. 24, 2014
"Narrow networks mean that some newly insured people are no longer covered for visits to previous providers, or, if they didn't have a doctor before, are limited in their new choices.... Welcome to the world of competition in health care, because that is what narrow networks are about. Narrow networks are used by competing plans to control health care costs, and perhaps improve quality as well. In fact, if you don't like narrow networks, you're saying, in effect, that you don't like competitive solutions ... to our health system's problems."
