1 Exhibit 4 Provider Network Provider Contract Requirements ICS must develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive provider network that assures access to primary and specialty health related care that meets the access, quality, and CMS credentialing standards. The provider services delivery network for the ICS shall have the size and resources necessary to assure comprehensive services to members throughout its designated service area without perceptible disruption of service. The primary care physicians shall be an integral part of the health care delivery system and should be informed of all services. The ICS medical director shall be responsible for the medical management of all members. Physician and hospital services rendered to members must be rendered by ICS participating network providers that the ICS has credentialed in compliance with CMS credentialing standards, except for ICS approved out-of-network or emergency services. All primary care physicians serving members must sign contracts with the ICS prior to serving the members. Provider Directory The ICS network provider directory shall identify all service sites, hospitals, specialists, and ancillary network providers. The directory shall include location addresses and telephone numbers for all providers and will be updated monthly. Any lists of ICS network providers made available to members shall be arranged alphabetically, showing the network provider s name and specialty and, separately, by specialty, in alphabetical order.

The screening or evaluation and all medically necessary emergency services when a member is referred by the ICS representative to the emergency room. 2. The screening or evaluation, when an absence of clinical emergency is determined by the member's presenting symptoms are of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that a prudent lay person, who possesses an average knowledge of Exhibit 4 Provider Network

3 health and medicine, could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in an emergency medical condition. 3. Both the screening or evaluation and stabilization services when a clinical emergency is determined. 4. Continued emergency services until the member can be safely discharged or transferred. 5. Post-stabilization services which are pre-authorized by the ICS or were not pre-authorized, but the ICS failed to respond to request for pre-authorization within one hour, or could not be contacted. Post-stabilization services remain covered until the ICS contacts the emergency room and takes responsibility for the member. f) Care for medical emergencies is to be provided to the member and ICS shall approve such claims without prior authorization. g) The ICS must provide access to health care services on a 24-hour, 7-day-aweek basis. The ICS must provide for after-hours access. The after-hours access does not include an answering machine or answering service unless it results in a prompt callback by someone who is licensed to render an appropriate clinical decision within a time appropriate to the situation but not to exceed 60 minutes. The caller must be connected to either the primary care physician, someone who can contact him, or her, or someone who can render a clinical decision on his/her behalf. The after hours coverage must be accessible using the medical office's daytime phone number. ICS will establish a mechanism that monitors the duration between the call and the response. h) The ICS network physician providers will comply with the in-office waiting time standard of 45 minutes. Provision of Care Outside the ICS Network. Policies shall be developed for the provision of medical services to members requiring referrals to out-of-network qualified specialty care providers to address the unique medical needs of the member if the care cannot be provided within the ICS. Financial arrangements for the provision of these services shall be agreed to prior to these services being rendered. Emergency services, including screening, examination, and evaluation provided to members outside the network by a service provider who does not have a contract with the ICS shall be reasonably reimbursed by the CMS fiscal agent based on the Medicaid rate. If the member must access services outside the ICS service area, the ICS must treat any CMS credentialed provider from that outside area as an in-network provider. Exhibit 4 Provider Network
