St. Joseph Regional Medical Center Reaches Agreement with Regence BlueShield of Idaho
February 05, 2020
Regence-insured patients will continue to have “in-network” access to care by the providers they know and trust.
We are pleased to announce that St. Joseph Regional Medical Center has reached a new agreement with Regence BlueShield of Idaho for our hospital and employed physician services. This is a win for our patients who deserve access to quality healthcare here at home, and we appreciate your 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 your 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 also remain in-network with Blue Cross of Idaho, Premera Blue Cross in Washington state, and other Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield health insurance plans.
Additionally, St. Joseph is in-network with:
- AmeriGroup (Washington Medicaid managed care plan)
- Blue Cross of Idaho (incl. FEP)
- Community Health Plan of Washington (Medicaid managed care plan)
- Consolidated Health Plans
- Coordinated Care
- First Choice
- First Health
- Independent Physicians Network (PacificSource)
- MODA (ODS) (Oregon Medicaid)
- MultiPlan / Private HealthCare Systems
- Three Rivers (Three Rivers Provider Network)
We are grateful to patients for the trust they place in St. Joe's and our team of caregivers. As always, we are here for you, and we look forward to caring for you, and your families, for generations to come.
