Network: Moreno Valley Community Hospital Purchased by Kaiser
Apr 17, 2009
Moreno Valley Community Hospital
(located in Riverside County and formerly part of Valley Health System) has been purchased by Kaiser Permanente. Anthem Blue Cross engaged in good faith negotiations with Kaiser in hopes that their Agreement with Valley Health System would be honored for the duration of the contract term. Unfortunately, Anthem has been unable to reach such an agreement and as a result Moreno Valley Community Hospital became a non participating hospital effective April 15, 2009.
The Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) approved Anthem's transition plan and letters are being mailed to fully insured PPO members enrolled in DMHC-licensed plans living within a 15-mile radius of the hospital, as well as to PPO physicians, HMO medical groups and clients.
