Healthcare Providers Including Vendors Available in the Community
Provider: A person or entity that provides health care services. This includes both practitioners and facilities.
Because this exam is given nationally there are not specific questions regarding the vendors and providers available in a specific community. Instead it is important to know that a provider is not only a person, such as a doctor or nurse, but can also be a corporation or organization for instance, a hospital, outpatient surgery center or urgent care. It is also important for the case manager to have knowledge of healthcare providers and vendors available in the community, including free or reduced cost clinics.
