BCBS/CHI/St. Elizabeth

There has been lots of media attention lately regarding the contract dispute between Catholic Health Initiative (CHI) and Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS).  We felt it was important to provide some information for our patients as it relates to this issue.

  1. Our office is NOT impacted by the contract dispute.  We are and will remain in the BCBS network and BCBS patients can continue to come to our office as an in-network BCBS provider.
  2. The lab at our office, Physician’s Lab or P-Lab, is NOT impacted by the contract dispute.  P-Lab is a private lab and is not affiliated with CHI.  Our BCBS patients can continue to have lab done here as P-lab will be in-network for BCBS.
  3. While the radiology department down the hall is affiliated with St. E’s, they have a separate contract and are NOT impacted by the contract dispute.  They will still be in-network with BCBS and our patients can continue to have x-rays taken at our office.

If you have any questions about this, please call our billing staff at 402-489-3834, option 2.
