We are working hard to keep you up to date on the latest information regarding our negotiations with TeamHealth. This page will be updated frequently, so please check back for more information.
What You Need to Know
- TeamHealth was paid around 30% more than the Tennessee market average for ER visits.
- BlueCross is a taxpaying not-for-profit that answers to our members, and our operating costs and profits are capped by law. We offered TeamHealth a new contract that would lower their unfair rates and reduce the financial strain on our members.
- TeamHealth refused to negotiate. As of Oct. 1, their providers are out-of-network.
- However, this issue should not impact members – your cost for care will remain the same.
