Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare

Keeping Health Coverage Affordable

As of Feb. 8, 2023, Methodist Healthcare and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital facilities have returned to our BlueCare Tennessee networks. We’re working to bring them back in network for Network P and S plans, which support members who are covered through an employer or who have purchased coverage on their own. We'll keep you up to date on our negotiations.

Continuity of Care in Memphis

Why we’re renegotiating with Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare

May 24, 2023

BlueCross exchanged proposals with Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare in early May, and our teams met the week of May 15. We are optimistic we’ll have an agreement soon.

Since Methodist left BlueCross commercial networks in January, our customer service teams have been working one on one with members to help them get the care they need. We’re diligently evaluating unique situations that involve requests to continue covering specialized care at Methodist Le Bonheur facilities.

Our members continue to have in-network access to a wide range of quality care services from other Memphis-area providers. We have partnerships with Baptist Memorial Health Care, St. Francis Hospital and Regional One Health. Those providers offer most of the same services available at Methodist, especially for adults.
