Patients of NDs who are Federal employees and are enrolled by either of two health insurance plans – GEHA (Government Employees Health Association) or FedBlue – should be able to have the covered services of their NDs reimbursed through these plans. AANP needs someone to test the waters!
While Section 2706 does not explicitly cover public sector health plans, these two plan descriptions state that providers are to be covered when they perform services within the scope of their license or certification. FedBlue explicitly mentions Section 2706 of the Affordable Care Act.
If you have patients who are enrolled either in the GEHA plan
or the FedBlue plan
, please contact AANP
and explain whether these patient office visits and the like are being covered.
