Just hours before the current contract to expire, officials with Parkview Health and Anthem agreed to a two day extension of the current agreement, one that was set to expire at 11:59 Tuesday Night.
To give the time needed to both parties involved to potentially come to a new longterm agreement, Northeast Indiana's biggest healthcare provider and one of the biggest insurers in the nation have agreed to extend their existing agreement to 11:59pm on July 30th.
The current agreement pertains to all Parkview providers and facilities in Indiana. Parkview Physicians Group providers based in Ohio are not impacted and will remain in-network for Anthem members.
The two sides have been at odds for months over the cost of healthcare in which Anthem says Parkview charges too much and Parkview states that they have presented Anthem with several solutions to the problem.
