Anthem is pleased to inform you that Hospital Corporation of America's California hospitals once again participates in Anthem Blue Cross' network. These facilities include:
In early March, Anthem sent a letter informing you that Hospital Corporation of America ("HCA") terminated their California hospital contracts with Anthem Blue Cross. Despite the terminations, both parties continued active negotiations with the hope that the hospitals would again participate in Anthem Blue Cross' network. These ongoing discussions resulted in the successful negotiation of new multi-year contracts ("Agreements") effective April 1, 2012.
The new Agreements reflect a commitment to provide members with access to quality healthcare from a network of outstanding physicians, medical groups, and healthcare facilities, at competitive rates. The reason Anthem negotiates provider contracts is simple - to provide members with a broad network of providers who have agreed to accept negotiated rates and other important contract terms. This makes premiums more affordable and lowers members' out-of-pocket expenses.
