OSF HealthCare will continue to be in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield network next year. The medical provider and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois reached an agreement this week.
Randy Billings is the Senior Vice President of Population Health at OSF. He says the OSF is pleased to reach the agreement with Blue Cross. He says it ensures OSF patients and families have in-network access to needed treatments and services.
Billings says the health care provider realizes the situation caused concern for many, and they appreciate the support and patience of local businesses and community leaders.
The new agreement reverses course after Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois terminated its hospital contracts with Peoria, Rockford, and Galesburg.
