The Network Management Unit is responsible for developing the content of the Network News newsletter. This newsletter is a quarterly publication specifically for Network Providers. The newsletter contains the latest information regarding plan benefits, contracts and fee schedules. The newsletter also serves as the chief method by which providers receive notifications mandated by the terms of the provider contracts.
To distribute the newsletter as efficiently as possible, they are distributed electronically to each Network Provider’s email address. Email addresses are obtained through information submitted on contract applications. Network Management also updates email addresses on a regular basis as providers submit current information connected with their practice locations.
To update email information, Network Providers can use the Network Provider Newsletter/Correspondence Email Update Form located at www.ok.gov/sib/documents/EmailProviderForm.pdf. Completed forms can be returned to Network Management by mail, fax or email to Network Management.
It is imperative providers inform Network Management when contact information of any type is updated. It is important providers receive communication from Network Management, so please make sure security settings allow this information to be accepted. The HealthChoice email addressEGID.NetworkNews@omes.ok.gov should be added to the safe contact list so Network Management emails are not be returned as undeliverable.
Printed newsletters are sent via the postal service to the mailing address on record for providers without Internet access or those who have undeliverable email addresses.
