No Agreement Between Augusta Health and AnthemPosted: Updated:
The hospital's contract with Anthem expired at midnight, despite negotiations continuing through Sunday.
That means Augusta Health is now "out-of-network" with the insurance company.
The hospital is reminding patients that emergency care is always covered, the contract dispute does not affect Medicare, and that physicians will remain "in-network" until January 31.
The Augusta Health Anthem Member Assistance Center will reopen after the holiday to help patients figure out their options.
