Redmond

Redmond CEO John Quinlivan said they’re expecting a deal will be hashed out with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia soon.

The contract between Hospital Corporation of America — the parent corporation for Redmond Regional Medical Center and Cartersville Medical Center as well as several other hospitals — and the insurer expired on Sept. 30.

When they failed to come to terms all HCA hospitals were no longer considered in-network as of Oct. 1.

“We expect to be back in network by this time tomorrow,” Quinlivan said around 1:35 p.m. Tuesday.

Quinlivan said the disagreement with one of Georgia’s largest insurers stemmed around policy changes the insurer was attempting to implement.

A release issued by BCSB stated the two are working to resolve their differences.

“We are working hard to reach a mutually beneficial agreement with HCA, including rates that are reasonable, fair and competitive, as well as contract terms that protect our members,” the release stated.
