Landmark, BC/BS reach accord

September 7, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Rhode Island and Landmark Medical Center have reached an agreement to extend their existing reimbursement contract, ending the threat that the health insurer’s members would not be covered for services rendered at the hospital.
Provided the pact is approved by the Superior Court – a hearing is scheduled for Wednesday – Blue Cross will honor the terms of its existing reimbursement agreement with Landmark until Dec. 31, or 90 days after Steward Health Care purchases the hospital, whichever comes first.
