As you are aware, Stanford University Hospital and Lucile Salter Packard Children’s Hospital (“Stanford Hospitals”) and their associated Physician Medical Groups terminated their agreements with the Anthem Blue Cross provider network, effective September 1, 2011.
Since that time, the parties have been engaged in active negotiations and we are pleased to announce that Anthem Blue Cross and Stanford Hospitals have reached a multi-year agreement with a retro effective date of September 1, 2011. Therefore, there will be no lapse in contract coverage and all claims from these providers with dates of service on and after September 1, 2011 will be considered in-network.
Delta Health Systems is in the process of re-considering all claims with dates of service on or after September 1, 2011. If you or your covered dependent(s) incurred a claim from one of these providers on or after September 1, 2011, please allow sufficient time for your claim to be re-reviewed.
If you have any questions, please contact Delta Health Systems at the toll free number on your ID card.
