Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) and Kelsey-Seybold Clinic are terminating certain contractual relationships. Kelsey-Seybold will leave the BCBSTX BlueChoice PPO/POS and Traditional/Par Plan networks effective Oct. 1, 2016.

BCBSTX has been in contract discussions with Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. While negotiations were held in good faith, they were not able to reach an agreement, therefore Kelsey-Seybold will leave the BCBSTX BlueChoice PPO/POS and Traditional/Par Plan networks effective Oct. 1, 2016.

BCBSTX felt the rates Kelsey-Seybold were receiving, BCBSTX members would bear the burden of unnecessary and unwarranted additional out-of-pocket costs with no guarantee of a better member experience. Because holding costs down for our Texas members is a priority for BCBSTX, they could not sustain the compensation currently in place for Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. 

 

BCBSTX negotiates reimbursement rates with providers on behalf of their employer groups and members. In all contract negotiations, their goal is to continue providing their members access to a broad network of providers at fair and reasonable prices. BCBSTX monitors their contracts closely to ensure they offer competitive rates to health care providers that also help keep premiums affordable for their members. 

 

Even though Kelsey-Seybold has made the decision to leave the BCBSTX BlueChoice PPO/POS and Traditional/Par Plan networks, members still have access to a broad network of participating providers.

 

Members can contact Customer Service at the number on their member ID card with questions or use our Provider Finder tool to get up-to-date listings of in-network providers. Members may continue to utilize Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, but may be responsible for a significant portion of the cost of provider visits if they continue to receive services from Kelsey-Seybold after Oct. 1, 2016. 

 

BCH is committed to bringing you updates on this matter as they develop. Please contact any member of your BCH Benefits Team for more information.
