A Note to MAHEC Patients with Blue Cross Blue Shield NC Insurance
MAHEC is North Carolina’s largest Area Health Education Center and operates as an independent not-for-profit organization. MAHEC’s family medicine, OB/GYN and dental centers at all locations are in-network providers for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina and will continue to be in-network moving forward. We are confident that some resolution between Blue Cross NC and Mission Health will be achieved and that Mission Health will remain in-network, which is vital for our region.
MAHEC patients will not experience any changes in coverage for office visits or in-office medical procedures, and patients will still be covered in-network at Mission for any type of emergency care.
Patients at MAHEC’s Ob/Gyn Specialists and all MAHEC Family Health Centers with Blue Cross NC insurance who are in their 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy prior to October 5, 2017 will continue to have labor and delivery services covered in-network* even after October 5th. This is possible under the Continuity of Care Transitional Period. This means in-network coverage will be available for labor and delivery even if there is no resolution by Oct. 5, 2017.
*NOTE: If you will be in your 2nd or 3rd trimester prior to October 5, you will need to apply for this benefit by contacting the number on the back of your Blue Cross NC insurance card. If you have any questions about your health insurance coverage, please contact Blue Cross NC.
