Physician Search

The NTSP physician search contains all physicians who are members of NTSP. Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information; however, changes occur daily and may not yet be included in the listing. The participating health plans listed for each individual physician are intended to be indicative of the health plans the physician participates in through NTSP. The physician you select may not participate in all plans listed, or may participate in additional health plans which may not be posted due to individual office changes or updates that have not yet reflected on the website. Please verify the physician’s participation in a particular plan by contacting the physician’s office directly.
