Important BCBS Illinois Update

A recent decision by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois will impact employers and patients throughout the state.

Effective January 1, 2018, all OSF Hospitals in Illinois with the exception of Saint Anthony’s Health Center in Alton will no longer participate in the Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO network. 

This action was prompted by a termination that was initiated by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. 

This termination impacts only the following Blue Cross products:  Commercial, BCBS PPO, all Blue Choice and EPO products. 

It is our hope that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois will realize the value of having OSF HealthCare hospitals in its network for its members, and rescind its termination.
