Negotiations between Memorial Health System in Marietta, Ohio, and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield are coming down to the wire as their contract deadline looms, according to NBC affiliate WTAP.
Memorial Health and Anthem have until Jan. 31 to come to a new in-network agreement, or else Anthem members may have to pay more out of pocket to access Memorial Health services.
The health system’s CEO, Scott Cantley, told the news station that negotiations concern reimbursement rates.
“We’ve been working hard with our employers who have Anthem as their insurance partner, so we continue to keep that group updated and keep our website updated with information to the public,” Mr. Cantley said.
