LUBBOCK, Texas, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The MED Group, a Managed Health Care Associates, Inc. (MHA) Company, today announced further expansion of its payer network with the signing of a new agreement with America's Choice Provider Network (ACPN). MED Group Members will now have access to an additional 22+ million covered lives through its agreement with ACPN, an independent, multi-specialty National Provider Network. 

The MED Group is the leading group purchasing and member services organization in the home medical equipment industry. The MED Group strives to offer HME providers innovative, value-added programs in addition to a competitive GPO portfolio, such as specialized clinical networks, MED U, which provides HME industry-specific education, and the MED Suppliers Network, which promotes and advertises the services of MED Members. The MED Group's comprehensive payer network is another example of this commitment and functions as a cost saving, revenue generating program that offers MED Members access to more than 175 million lives. 

ACPN, through their proprietary network and technology, offers providers access to lives beyond traditional group health by contracting with clients in worker's compensation and auto liability. Its payer clients primarily consist of third party administrators (TPAs), insurance carriers, health and welfare funds, employer groups, and self-insured health plans.

"We are confident this agreement will provide our members a great opportunity to continue to grow their business," said Jeff Woodham, Senior Vice President and General Manager, The MED Group.
