Regence advocates for controlling member costs with St. Joseph Regional Medical Center

Regence advocates for controlling member costs with St. Joseph Regional Medical Center

Updated Jan. 16, 2020 Regence BlueShield of Idaho regularly negotiates with health systems across the state on contracts that ensure our members receive high-quality, cost-effective health care. Patients should never be put in the middle of these standard business negotiations. We have been working transparently and in good faith with St. Joseph Regional Medical Center leadership to reach a fair agreement that best serves the Lewiston community. Unfortunately, St. Joseph’s Tennessee-based owner, LifePoint Health, has removed St. Joseph Medical Center from our network as of Jan. 16, 2020. We strongly disagree with this decision as it has created unnecessary concern and disruption for the Lewiston community. As negotiations continue, we remain committed to reaching a reasonable agreement that you and your neighbors can afford.
