Message to Patients regarding Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas
HOUSTON, TX (June11,
Memorial Hermann Health System is committed to providing our patients with high quality, safe and cost-effective health care through our broad, clinically-integrated network of physicians and hospitals.
For almost a year, we have conducted ongoing contract discussions with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX). Unfortunately, we have not been able to negotiate an acceptable agreement. As a result, our relationship with BCBSTX is set to end effective July 1, 2013. We are hopeful that we will come to terms with BCBSTX before July 2013 so there is no disruption in care.
We appreciate you selecting Memorial Hermann as your provider of choice to care for your health care needs and those of your family. As Houston’s only full service health system, our mission is to identify and meet the healthcare needs in this region as we have done for more than 100 years.
Should you have any questions about your ongoing care, please contact your physician.
