The answer is maybe, or maybe not. (I will fight to keep mine.)
Look, the entire U.S. health system is under virtual audit and shakedown with Obamacare introducing new standards. In addition, the Obamacare system is dependent upon data from insurance providers and doctors themselves. If the data on record is out of date or not maintained properly, all sorts of things (errors) can happen.
The notion, “create data once and use it many times” is a good idea. However, there must be a standard for ensuring seamless updates of credentialing and privileging information about healthcare professionals and their provider organizations.
Because we still have a states-based system to a large degree, there is the overall lack of uniformity and consistency one would expect.
As for you and your doctor, if you want to be on the same page, start with them and ask what insurance they accept or with which they are otherwise affiliated. If the doctor wants you as a patient as much as you want them, you might work it out. Sometimes, not.
“Top story: Obamacare has problems you haven't even heard about yet
Here's a new problem with Obamacare: inaccurate provider-network data.
"Many new health exchanges don't yet let shoppers see which doctors accept which insurance plans. Where exchanges do post the so-called provider lists, they often contain inaccurate or misleading information, some doctors say, including wrong specialties, addresses and language skills, and no indication whether providers are accepting new patients. Exchange officials blame the insurance industry, where inaccurate and out-of-date provider lists are nothing new. "I don't think we realized that the underlying data had quite this number of problems. Now, it's becoming more transparent," said Joshua Sharfstein, Maryland's secretary of health and the chairman of its exchange...[I]n addition to providing wrong information, the lists may give consumers a false impression of how big the networks are, some physicians say."
