Local hospitals to join network
St. John's Hospital-Cassville and St. John's Hospital-Aurora will become participating providers in the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Missouri network effective Oct. 1.
The hospitals in Aurora and Cassville and rural community physicians in Barry and Lawrence counties will only participate in Anthem's PPO network.
"This association with Blue Cross Blue Shield helps ensure residents throughout the region have expanded choice of providers," said Kim Day, St. John's Health System president and chief executive officer. "We also value the ability of residents in this region to have access to the high-quality, state-of-the-art care that St. John's delivers every day."
