Become a Part of Something Special

ChildNet Medical Associates provides its physicians and members a network of shared knowledge and experiences, contracting facilitation, credentialing with health plans, and payor/provider network support.

Con­tract­ed Net­work Providers

ChildNet’s Net­work Par­tic­i­pa­tion Agree­ment (NPA) pro­vides mem­bers with access to a vari­ety of health plans and pay­ors. In addi­tion, providers have access to val­ue-added ser­vices such as a Group Pur­chas­ing Pro­gram. The NPA cov­ers both indi­vid­ual and group prac­tice arrange­ments; exhibits attached to the NPA define these relationships.
