In 2014, the biggest problem with doctor networks came with plans purchased on Covered CA.   It was hard to determine if your doctor took the Covered CA plans.  The Covered CA search engine was incorrect and removed from the website.    Some doctors only participated in networks used by off-exchange plans.
