Insurance Coverage Should Not Be Affected By Change To SSM Health

The health insurance coverage you used for Agnesian HealthCare visits should not be affected now that they are owned by SSM Health. Agnesian HealthCare President and CEO says there will be no changes and they will honor most health care insurance providers. He says it is in their best interest to make sure they serve their population in the most effective way. He notes some insurance companies are health care provider specific and if that’s the case you may be required to visit another healthcare provider. There are some health plans that exclude Agnesian for example Anthem Blue Priority is an Aurora only network. SSM is allowing Agnesian to contract with everyone else. Little says they have contracts with all major insurance companies and provider only health plans that have a presence in the local marketplace.
