We Are Your Advocate

BlueCross BlueShieldLatest Updates

We hope CHI Memorial will reconsider their unreasonable demands and work with us to reach a new agreement that preserves access to care, avoids disruptions and keeps costs down for our members, before our current agreement expires on June 30, 2024. We realize that, for many of you, CHI Memorial is your preferred choice for health care services. Here’s what you need to know: 

  • As advocates for our members, we have a responsibility to hold down costs now and in the future. 
  • Insurance premiums are based on what we must pay providers for care – and we cannot keep premiums affordable for our members if we’re paying significantly more to health care providers for the same care. 
  • Our current contract with CHI Memorial extends through June 30, 2024 – so you won’t see any change or impact until July 1, 2024. The only exception is CHI Memorial Health at Home, which has chosen to leave our networks even sooner, on March 29, 2024. However, we’re hopeful Memorial will agree to reasonable rates and terms before our contract ends.  
  • CHI Memorial doesn’t offer any services that aren’t available through other area in-network providers. 

If our members have a true emergency, they should go to the closest emergency room, including those at CHI Memorial facilities, even after June 30, 2024. Check out our FAQ page for additional information.
