We are pleased to announce that Anthem Blue Cross has reached an agreement with Stanford Health Care (formerly known as Stanford University Medical Center).
As you may recall, Stanford Health Care terminated its contract with Anthem Blue Cross effective September 8, 2014. Despite the contract's termination, both parties continued active negotiations with the hope that Stanford Health Care would again participate in Anthem Blue Cross's network.
These ongoing discussions resulted in the successful negotiation of new multi-year contracts, which includes the Commercial Hospital Agreement as well as the PPO Agreements, University Health Care Alliance, Inc. and Stanford Hospitals and Clinics; and the HMO Agreement, Affinity Medical Group. The new multi-year contracts are retroactively effective September 8, 2014.
Thank you for your patience and continued support as we worked through this difficult time!
