Updates on Negotiations Between Anthem and Northside

The current Northside Hospital System (“Northside”) contract with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (“Anthem”) has been extended through April 15, 2022.

It’s important to note that Anthem does not have new agreement with Northside and must continue working toward that goal.

If a new, consumer-friendly agreement is not reached before this extension period expires on April 15, 2022, Northside facilities and physicians will no longer be included in Anthem’s network.

You can read more details on Anthem’s website here, and we will post more updates as the become available.

UFCW Local 1996 is monitoring these negotiations to ensure that the healthcare coverage of our member is protected.
