Availability and Access to Care

Providers must ensure availability of health care services by a BHN participating provider twenty four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week, three hundred and sixty five (365) days per year including coverage for weekends, vacations and after office hours.


BHN requires participating providers to use reasonable efforts to find in-network providers for our members. This includes surgical assistants or assistant surgeons.

MagnaCare in-network providers can be found here.

Create in-network providers can be found here.

Referrals to an emergency room should not occur for care that can be provided in an office setting.

Checking Eligibility

Providers should verify each patient’s eligibility and benefits prior to rendering services. Verification requests shall be confirmed directly with BHN, unless otherwise indicated.

When a member presents with an emergency condition, eligibility verification must occur within two (2) business days of initial treatment if the individual is admitted to the hospital. The hospital shall notify BHN or payor’s utilization department, as applicable, upon admission of any member within the standard requirement established by BHN or such payor, as applicable.
