Reductions key point in Mountain States negotiations with BlueCross

April 6th, 2013 10:03 am by Sue Guinn Legg

Contract negotiations between Mountain States Health Alliance and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee are within 60 days of a deadline for renewal that BlueCross says may result in the termination of its network coverage at MSHA facilities.

BCBS notified approximately 26,500 Blue Cross members this week that its coverage for care provided by MSHA facilities, including hospitals in Johnson City, Kingsport, Elizabethton and Mountain City, will end June 1.

Community relations representatives for BlueCross and Mountain States said Friday the sticking point is a proposed reduction in BlueCross reimbursements rates that both sides hope will be resolved without any interruption of coverage.
