We wanted to make you aware that Anthem and Northside Hospital System are currently in contract negotiations. If an agreement isn’t reached by Dec. 31, Northside Hospital System will be out of network for the USG Anthem plans – Consumer Choice HSA, Comprehensive Care and BlueChoice HMO – as of January 1, 2022.
If an agreement is not reached by January 1, 2022, employees and dependents enrolled in the Anthem plans who utilize Northside doctors or facilities will be subject to out-of-network benefits coverage unless the care is approved under Continuation of Care. If you are currently in treatment with a Northside provider, you will receive more information about Continuation of Care from Anthem in the coming weeks.
Information about the negotiations is available on the Anthem website at anthem.com/northside.
We will continue provide updates as we receive them. View FAQs here.
