10 MISSISSIPPI HOSPITALS REACH OUT TO BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD
JACKSON, MS – Over the past two months multiple efforts have been made to get BlueCross BlueShield of Mississippi (BCBS-MS) to respond to the 10 Mississippi hospitals’ to which they recently sent termination letters. In the spirit of transparency we wanted to be sure our position is clear, not only to BCBS-MS but also to every policy holder. Attached is an exact copy of the letter that was hand-delivered to BCBS-MS on August 27, 2013, in yet another effort to avoid causing distress and confusion to BCBS-MS patients. No response has been received.
The hospitals who received BCBS of MS termination letters are: River Oaks Hospital, Central Mississippi Medical Center, Woman’s Hospital, Madison River Oaks Medical Center, Crossgates River Oaks Hospital, Biloxi Regional Medical Center, Natchez Community Hospital, Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, Tri-Lakes Medical Center and Gilmore Memorial Regional Medical Center.
