Anthem Blue Cross and HCA Renew Contract

Just an update regarding the contract termination between Anthem Blue Cross and HCA (Hospital Corporation of America). As you may be aware, the agreement was terminated by HCA in early March over the inability to reach an acceptable contract.

Further negotiations were successful and multi-year contracts were achieved between Anthem Blue Cross and HCA effective April 1, 2012.

The following HCA hospitals were affected by the contract termination and are now participating providers with Anthem Blue Cross:

*Good Samaritan Hospital San Jose
*Los Robles Regional Medical Center
*Regional Medical Center of San Jose
*Riverside Community Hospital
*West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

Have a great Easter weekend!
