CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) has reached a multi-year agreement for all hospitals of Greensboro-based Moses Cone Health System to remain in the health insurer’s networks
The agreement, which was effective July 1, includes Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital, Wesley Long Community Hospital, The Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, and Annie Penn Hospital in Reidsville.
"We’re pleased that the respected hospitals of the Moses Cone Health System will continue to be part of our strong network of hospitals in the Triad region," said Milo Brunick, BCBSNC vice president of Network Management. "We value our relationship with Moses Cone, and we were pleased to come to a mutually beneficial agreement so quickly."
The agreement means that members will continue to have access to covered services at the Moses Cone Health System hospitals at in-network benefit levels. The contract includes all BCBSNC products, except the State Health Plan, which has a separate contract in effect with Moses Cone.
BCBSNC also recently reached a multi-year agreement with hospitals and other health care providers of Duke University Health System. Hospitals in that system include Duke University Hospital, Durham Regional Hospital and Duke Health Raleigh Hospital.
BCBSNC networks include about 95 percent of the hospitals in North Carolina.
"Our comprehensive network demonstrates our commitment to work with hospitals to reach reasonable agreements that provide members with a wide choice of health care options while keeping costs as affordable as possible," Brunick said.
