Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn. – (March 8, 2017) – Children’s Minnesota announced today that it is ending its contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and Blue Plus (Blue Cross). The result of the termination is that Children’s will become an out-of-network provider for all Blue Cross health plans. This change will be effective as early as July 5, 2017, or if Blue Cross chooses to extend the current contract, December 31, 2017.
Children’s Minnesota is ending its contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota and Blue Plus (Blue Cross). A key reason is a drastic and unprecedented cut demanded by Blue Cross in its reimbursement rates for our Medicaid patients. We are in the process of notifying families about what this means for their ability to access services through our hospitals and clinics once our contract ends.
