New search capabilities bring more transparency into access, cost and quality
PHOENIX, Ariz. (October 29, 2021) — In keeping with their commitment to innovation that fuels strong, vigorous and healthy lives, Vālenz® has announced the release its new Provider Locator tool. Available online for plan members and administrators to access anytime, the new and improved Provider Locator is uniquely designed to bring more information and transparency to the process of choosing a provider for healthcare services.
In addition to an array of filters for members to refine searches according to their individual needs and preferences, the new Provider Locator also includes star-ratings and cost data, as well as an interactive map that pins provider locations within the defined geography. Search results include providers currently under contract within each member’s Valenz Access provider network, as well as “Valenz-Friendly” providers who have previously accepted reimbursement from Valenz.
“Engaging early and often for smarter, better, faster healthcare can take many forms, but in most cases, it begins with connecting people to quality providers who will deliver the right care at the right time and at the right cost according to plan coverage,” said Maurice Steenland, Senior Vice President of Product and Delivery. “We are very excited about this initial release and look forward to continuously expanding the data available to plan members in support of their healthcare decisions.”
With future updates, says Steenland, the Provider Locator tool will become more robust with expanded cost and quality data for providers in Valenz networks.
