Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts announced today an expansion of its Medicare provider network to include Iora Health.
Iora Primary Care, Iora Health’s consumer brand, began accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare Advantage plans on October 1, 2018. This means that Medicare beneficiaries with an Iora Primary Care provider now have the option to select Blue Cross as their Medicare carrier.
“We are thrilled to welcome Iora Health into our Medicare network,” said Stephanie Lovell, Blue Cross’ executive vice president of Medicare. “They are a wonderful addition to our Medicare network because their relationship-based care model complements our commitment to providing high-quality care that puts members first.”
“Iora Primary Care is a primary care doctor’s office for adults on Medicare. We know that when you invest in relationships with people, you can help them live happier and healthier,” said Iora Primary Care Northeast Medical Director Neil Patel. “We’re thrilled to partner with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts to care for more Medicare patients in Massachusetts, the state where Iora got its start and is still headquartered.”
Iora Primary Care has practices in Hyde Park and Medford.
