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.
