Any Willing Provider Laws
What are "Any Willing Provider" Laws?
"Any willing provider laws require managed care plans to accept any qualified provider who is willing to accept the terms and conditions of a managed care plan. These laws do not require managed care plans to contract with all providers. However, they do require managed care plans to explicitly state evaluation criteria and ensure “due process” for providers who wish to contract with the plan." (NCSL)
Numerous states have some form of any willing provider law. However, any willing provider laws are not uniform state to state which means that the provisions and statutes of one state's AWP laws may not be exactly like that of another state.
