Mountain States Health Alliance has been granted a 30-day extension to negotiate its contract with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee before the insurance provider terminates its network coverage at Mountain States facilities, officials confirmed Wednesday.

Tony Benton, vice president of communications for Mountain States, said BlueCross agreed Tuesday to give MSHA a 30-day extension that would continue through July 1.

Benton said Mountain States will accept the 30-day extension after initially asking for a 90-day extension last week while both companies continue negotiations.
