By choosing a provider with the Emerald Coast Health Alliance, you will help to ensure service-orientated, customer focused providers sensitive to your needs, with convenient locations in your community. Our members participate in a patient satisfaction survey process. The surveys are distributed to the patients to ensure that we hear from you – the customer.
See how we are doing with our patients. All of our members have passed an extensive credentialing process. The process verifies a member’s education and training, whether they are Board Certified or whether their licenses and registrations are current and without restrictions. This information is kept current and formally reviewed every 2 years. Our re=credentialing process also includes a site visit to help ensure a safe and user friendly environment for your care.
Participation with various insurance companies and plans are based on the personal decision of each provider. To determine if a provider participates with your insurance plan you should call the customer service number listed on your insurance card. You may also check directly with your providers office. Participation by individual members is voluntary and still should be verified. For a list of Alliance facilitated contracts see the Insurance Participation section.
The Emerald Coast Health Alliance has several physician/facilities that have positions of employment available. For a list of positions available see Employment Opportunities.
