Finding a Doctor in Nevada

How do I find a doctor in Nevada?

Finding a doctor in Nevada can be an overwhelming feeling. If someone doesn’t know where to start then it can be a tough experience. The first thing you will have to keep in mind is if the doctor is in-network or not in-network. In-network doctors are available on the insurance companies website. The reason you should look to see if your doctor is in-network is so you don’t get charged the out of network price. Paying for a service that is out of network is an easy way to break the bank. The best way to find your doctor will be to go on the provider’s website and search their doctors lists.


Looking for a Primary Care Physician

There are few factors to look for when looking for a primary care physician. The first thing you need to know is if you are on an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) network or a PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) network. If you have an HMO plan then you will need to get established with a primary care physician in order to see any type of specialist. HMO plans will require you to have a referral to see specialists in the area. If you have a PPO plan in Nevada then you can schedule an appointment with a specialist without having to see a primary car physician.


Do all companies have the same doctors?

No. Each company has a different list of doctors. Some companies may have a couple different lists of doctors depending on their plans. The best way to find a doctor is to visit their web page and look at their directory. You will need to know your doctor’s name and practice address as well as the plan you are buying. Here is a list of the different companies in Nevada and a link to their doctors lists.
