Keeping Care Affordable
Where We Stand
BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has been working to sign a new contract with Radiology Alliance, one of the state’s largest private radiology practice groups, mainly serving hospitals, outpatient facilities and clinics in the Middle Tennessee and Chattanooga areas. The Associates in Diagnostic Radiology (ADR) group in Chattanooga is part of Radiology Alliance.

We Are Your Advocate
We’ve always focused on ensuring affordability of care, and in the COVID-19 era, that matters more than ever. Here’s what you need to know:
- Our first responsibility is to our members – making sure you have access to high-quality in-network care and keeping the cost of that care affordable.
- It is difficult to keep coverage affordable for our members if we’re paying significantly more to some health care providers for the same care.
- We will continue to work to reach an equitable agreement with Radiology Alliance.
