Blue Cross Blue Shield Network Change

Network change for small group of Blue Cross Blue Shield members

We recently learned that Blue Cross Blue Shield had notified a small group of members that Hutchinson Health would no longer be considered in-network as part of their health plan. This change impacts a limited number of plans sold by BCBS featuring a narrow network that until now, Hutchinson Health had been a part of. This change does not impact other contracts between Hutchinson Health and BCBS.

This change was scheduled to take effect September 1, so we immediately reached out to BCBS. BCBS has since agreed to delay the effective date for this network change to December 31, 2019.

This is important because it provides patients more time to consider an alternative plan, and occurs during the normal course of the annual enrollment selection period.

If you have any questions please reach out to BCBS or Hutchinson Health at 320-234-5000. We are here to help our patients in any way possible and we remain committed to providing the patients in our community with high-quality, affordable health care.
