We have reached an agreement to keep CHI Memorial in our networks

After months of negotiations, we are pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with CHI Memorial.

Earlier this summer, we informed our customers and members there was a possibility CHI Memorial Health Care System might leave some of our plans effective Sept. 8.

We always strive to balance quality, access and affordability in our networks, and sometimes that can be challenging. We’re happy to continue our relationship with CHI Memorial, a longtime partner who has provided quality care to members in the Chattanooga area for many years.

We appreciate the trust and patience of our customers, members and provider partners as we worked through this contract negotiation.

If you’re a BlueCross member and have any questions, please give us a call at the telephone number on the back of your member ID card.

We’re still working to reach a new agreement, but if they do leave our networks, we’ll be right here to help you get the care you need.
