Urgent Care Association Opens Enrollment for Gateway2Better Network

June 28, 2019

The Urgent Care Association (UCA) is accepting enrollment into the new Gateway2Better Network™, which will connect participants with organizations seeking urgent care and on-demand services through contractual partnerships. The network will enable individual, regional and national healthcare organizations to join a nationwide network and secure partnerships designed to support growth, innovation and access to care.


“Through the Gateway2Better Network, on-demand healthcare organizations will become part of a large network and have the opportunity to participate in contracts they normally may not have access to, opening up opportunities to expand services and reach more patients,” said Laurel Stoimenoff, CEO of UCA. “UCA will promote the network and manage the contracts, allowing participating members to focus more time treating patients with reduced efforts on new patient acquisition.” 


How it Works

Urgent care and on-demand organizations interested in being part of the Gateway2Better Network (G2BN) will sign a simple partnership agreement, provide credentialing documentation and build a profile for organizations to review. UCA will actively market the network as a direct-to-employer or healthcare contractor alternative, executing contracts for the network on behalf of participating organizations. The Gateway2Better Network is a UCA member benefit, so the ability to join the network is exclusive to organizational members. 


Whenever a new contract becomes available to G2BN, participants will have 10 days to review and decide if they want to opt in or out. Then, G2BN will provide the partnering organization with information about the member location(s) and services offered.


“The network is designed to simplify the process of acquiring new patients for member organizations, as well as make it easier for patients to access on-demand, affordable care without worrying about out-of-network expenses,” said Stoimenoff. “By aggregating our organizational members across the country, the national Gateway2Better Network will seamlessly connect government, self-insured employers and other stakeholders seeking healthcare destinations for employees or customers to our member organizations. UCA fields frequent inquiries for regional or national urgent care services.  The Gateway2Better Network is a solution we can now offer them.”


A live webinar, open to all organizations interested in participating in the Gateway2Better Network, will be held at 1 p.m. CT on July 9, 2109. For more information on the network or to register for the webinar, visitwww.ucaoa.org/G2BN.
