Sutter Health and Blue Shield of California Renew Agreement, Extending Their Network Relationship in a New Multi-Year Deal
SACRAMENTO, Calif.–Blue Shield of California and Sutter Health have signed a new multi-year agreement giving the nonprofit health plan members uninterrupted access to Sutter’s integrated network in Northern California.
While the current agreement doesn’t expire until the end of this year, the two organizations were able to renew their contract to extend the network relationship with a new multi-year contract.
Blue Shield of California members enrolled in employer-sponsored, individual or Medicare Advantage plans that currently have in-network access to Sutter providers will continue to enjoy their services without interruption.
“At Blue Shield, our members have the choice to get great care from a wide range of in-network medical providers across the state,” said Paul Markovich, President and CEO at Blue Shield. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with Sutter Health to give our members access to their integrated network.”
“Sutter Health and Blue Shield of California’s early contract renewal is great news and provides certainty to tens of thousands of Northern Californians that they will continue to have access to Sutter Health’s integrated network of hospitals, physicians and other providers,” said Sutter Health President and CEO Sarah Krevans. “Our goal is to always deliver healthcare to our patients that is safe, personal, affordable and accessible.”
