| Posted by | Categories: Our Community, Uncategorized, Your YRMC

Dignity Health Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) have extended their negotiation deadline another 24 hours as the organizations work toward reaching a fair and responsible agreement. The negotiation period has been extended through Tuesday, Feb. 7. BCBSAZ-insured patients will maintain their in-network access to YRMC services through the extension date.

As we have stated throughout, we do not underestimate our responsibility as the region’s high-quality health care provider. We recognize and do not take lightly the inconvenience this negotiation has caused for our patients with coverage from BCBSAZ.

Responsible agreements with health insurance companies are essential to providing high quality health care to our community. We will continue to work around the clock and continue our conversations with BCBSAZ in hopes of reaching an agreement that is in the best interest of our patients.
