CHI Memorial Staying in Network P, Medicare Advantage and BlueCare

BlueCross BlueShieldLatest Updates

We are pleased to announce we have reached a new agreement with CHI Memorial and its Illinois-based parent company, CommonSpirit, for our Network P and Medicare Advantage and BlueCare members.

This allows members covered by a Network P plan through an employer or a Medicare Advantage plan to continue receiving in-network care at CHI Memorial facilities and with physicians at CHI Memorial Medical Group and The Chattanooga Heart Institute. The agreement also allows BlueCare members to continue to receive in-network care with CHI Memorial.

The new agreement includes an automatic renewal after the initial three-year term to support the doctor-patient relationships our members value.

Our members and business customers rely on us to balance affordability with access to high-quality care. We’re pleased to make an agreement that supports those needs for members and businesses in Network P as well as individuals covered by our Medicare Advantage plans and BlueCare.

We are grateful for our members’ and business customers’ patience as we worked to reach a resolution that supports affordable care and coverage.

BlueCross members with a Network S plan will have in-network access to CHI Memorial through June 30. Starting July 1, Parkridge Health System will join Erlanger in Network S.
