The Medical Center of Central Georgia, Affiliated Hospitals and Physicians Work To Avoid Potential Termination of Contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield

MACON, GA (Saturday, March 22, 2014) – The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG), its hospital affiliates and Central Georgia Health Network (CGHN) announced today that their current contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) is set to terminate on April 24, 2014.

While BCBS members are likely to receive official notification in the next few days as required by law, MCCG, its affiliates, CGHN and BCBS continue to work hard to ensure no disruption to services will occur.  

Should the entities not reach a new agreement by that deadline, employers/employees across central Georgia will be affected as The Medical Center of Central Georgia, The Medical Center of Peach County, Central Georgia Rehabilitation Hospital and CGHN providers, including 841 physicians, transition to out of network status.

In negotiations for the past few months, all parties remain committed to the patients and employers throughout central Georgia and hope to achieve a positive outcome.  MCCG and CGHN remains cautiously optimistic that continued discussions will lead to a positive outcome before the April 24 deadline.
