Beech Street was recently acquired by MultiPlan, and they are working to integrate the Beech Street Network into MultiPlan's networks. As a network partner, MultiPlan delivers patient volume from a diverse base of healthcare payers who use their technology to apply the contracted discounts quickly and accurately. By integrating Beech Street participation into MultiPlan network products, members will consolidate contract and credentialing functions and significantly expand their access to patients. MultiPlan and Beech Street clients offer access to an estimated 19 million consumers on a primary PPO basis and another 38 million consumers on a complimentary basis.

Furthermore, MultiPlan was founded in 1980. It is the nation's oldest and largest independent, network-based cost management solutions supplier. With the 2010 acquisition of Viant and the Beech Street Network, they have almost 900,000 healthcare providers under contract, an estimated 57 million consumers accessing the network products, and 110 million claims processed through the networks yearly. They are also the company that can offer access to the leading independent national primary PPO and their complementary network, negotiation services, and medical reimbursement services through a single electronic claim submission.

They have more than 560,000 practitioners, 5,000 hospitals, and 85,000 specialty care facilities participating in the Beech Street Network, so it's not difficult to find a participating provider in any area of the country. They also offer online search capabilities so that the members can locate the care they need twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

The website of Beech Street is accessible to anyone who wants to have a piece of information about the doctors and hospitals near their area. Also, it indicates if the doctor or hospital is a part of the network. It is refreshed daily to ensure the accuracy of the information in their directory. However, some changes that may occur daily may not yet be included in the directory. If that happens, a member can call the provider directly. There is a Beech+, a comprehensive provider referral system that enables clients to locate their in-network PPO providers. Because Beech+ uses Beech Street's live provider database, clients can access the most current information. They are able to identify a provider or facility based on multiple search options such as name, TIN, address/location, Payor/Employer, and patient demographics. An additional feature is an option to browse by mileage, which broadens the client's ability to expand beyond the standard search radius.
