Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia to immediately rescind recent amendments to their existing physician contracts
Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens has required Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia to immediately rescind recent amendments to their existing physician contracts.
Commissioner Hudgens’ action comes in response to numerous complaints from physicians regarding the insurer’s amendments to existing contracts. Complaints focused on lack of clarity in the terms of the contract, including the actual amount doctors would be reimbursed for providing medical services.
“This action resets the process while at the same time preserving the existing physician agreements without the amendments,” Hudgens said. “Georgia consumers will have continuous access to their Blue Cross contracted doctors and will not be impacted by this action.”
