DETROIT—Health Alliance Plan, the Michigan-based nonprofit health plan, announced the addition of 25 health care facilities and nearly 900 health care providers to its provider network. The new additions represent several key provider organizations and include McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital and Holland Hospital along with their affiliated physicians.
“HAP’s ongoing commitment is to provide the most exceptional consumer experience and that includes convenient access to the care our members want and need,” said Michael Genord, M.D., president and CEO, HAP. “By adding high-quality doctors and hospitals to HAP’s already extensive network of providers, we are making it even easier for members to get the care they need, when and where they need it. This is especially important for Medicare beneficiaries who are shopping for a plan right now that will meet their individual health care needs in the new year.”
The following providers are being added to HAP’s network, and will be in-network for HAP’s 2023 Medicare Advantage HMO and PPO plans:
