St. Joseph Regional Medical Center Reaches Agreement with Regence BlueShield of Idaho
Regence-insured patients will continue to have “in-network” access to care by the providers they know and trust
Sam Skinner, Marketing & Communications
St. Joseph Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that we have reached a new agreement with Regence BlueShield of Idaho that reinstates “in-network” coverage for services provided to patients covered by Regence. This is a win for our patients who deserve access to quality healthcare here at home, and we appreciate their patience as we have worked through this process.
Effective immediately, St. Joe’s and our employed physicians will again be considered “in-network” with Regence BlueShield of Idaho. The agreement covers both employer-sponsored commercial insurance plans and Regence Medicare Advantage plans and is retroactive to protect patients from higher out-of-network costs for care received between January 15 and today.
From the outset, we have been committed to securing our patients’ access to high-quality healthcare. Our new agreement does just that and provides the opportunity to move forward and continue working with Regence to care for our community.
We thank patients for the trust they place in St. Joe’s and our team of caregivers, and we look forward to meeting the region’s healthcare needs for generations to come.
