Baptist Medical Health Group is no longer accepting some patients insured through Humana, after the companies were unable to reach an agreement Friday.
After months of negotiations, there was no agreement on a new contract, meaning Baptist Health Medical Group will be out of Humana’s network for Medicare Advantage and employer-sponsored commercial plans.
Patients are now left frantic and unsure of where to turn next since this means higher out-of-pocket costs for medical services.
The change only effects Baptist Health Medical Group, Baptist Health hospitals are still in-network for Humana.
Baptist Health is encouraging patients to call Humana at the number on the back of their insurance card to learn about their plan’s out-of-network benefits.
