Q. Why is Wilmington Health not accepting BCBSNC Blue Medicare in 2014? I have two specialists that I won’t be able to see next year.
A. We posed the question to Jeff James, CEO of Wilmington Health. In two responses, he didn’t directly address the question of exactly why Wilmington Health decided not to accept BCBSNC Medicare. Here is his second, slightly less vague response:
“There are a number of factors that go network decisions. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out this year to stay in-network with Blue Cross’ Medicare Advantage product, but it’s something we’ll consider in future years. We do remain in-network for their other products (BCBS) and we are in-network for other Medicare Advantage plans. We are making every effort to ensure a smooth transition for our patients.”
