Memorial, Anthem contract negotiations ongoingOctober 30, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Contract negotiations between Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center and Anthem are ongoing.
According to a Memorial Hospital press release, Anthem provided the hospital with a proposal as recent as Monday, but “it is acknowledged that both sides remain far apart,” the press release reads.
Face-to-face meetings are scheduled over the next 10 days.
Memorial Hospital has established the Memorial Health Resource Center to support patients with Anthem insurance plans. Memorial staff will provide this free service and work one-on-one with patients to evaluate their unique health care needs and situations, payment plans and financial assistance options.
Staff will be able to assist patients with chronic conditions, those who are currently in a course of treatment, in the second or third trimester of pregnancy, or who are terminally ill by completing and submitting continuation of care forms to Anthem. The paperwork and forms to be completed vary by patient situation, so patients are encouraged to contact the Memorial Health Resource Center to discuss their specific circumstances.
To schedule an appointment, call 812-996-6399.
