CHICO, Calif. - At midnight on Wednesday, Enloe Medical Center will terminate its contract with Anthem Blue-Cross unless a deal is reached before then.
If Anthem Blue Cross is your provider, there are a few things you need to know. Enloe officials told Debbie Cobb from Action News Now everything they need to know moving forward.
Only commercial contracts are impacted by this, meaning anyone who is employed and their employer carries Anthem Blue Cross.
People who are insured by Medicare and Medical are not impacted.
If you're an anthem customer and you have a surgery or procedure on the books that's already been authorized, you may be covered past Thursday, depending on the plan.
Members may also be eligible to continue their care for terminal or serious illnesses and for pregnant women and babies up to 36-months-old.
Enloe representatives said they're renegotiating because they feel the provider continues to raise premiums and despite profit surges, it's not investing back into the community it's supposed to serve.
Hospital administrators worry that doctors may leave the hospital rather than get short-changed by the insurance company.
