What is the Status of Providers Who Are In-Network at SMC LME but Out-of-Network at WHN LME?

Here is an e mail to a gentleman at SMC LME.  If anyone knows the answer to this question, please contact me at:  Thanks.  Marsha V. Hammond, PhD, Licensed Psychologist, NC

"You stated: "Hello, Dr. Hammond

I am an IN NETWORK provider w/ SMC LME and an OUT OF NETWORK PROVIDER w/ WHN LME.  What is therefore my status re: WHN catchment area? 

I won't go into the fact that it took a year to get even that squeezed out of WHN LME and if you wanted to see what a hassle it was to work w/ them you could look at my blog.  

All I want to know is if I can bypass them altogether.  A completely useless LME and I'm glad they've skidded off the road.  

Pass this to anyone you like.  "
