SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) — The vice president of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois claims the insurance company doesn’t have any regulatory issues going into Fiscal Year 2024. Although, Springfield Clinic leaders said they’re disappointed Blue Cross wasn’t transparent about ongoing problems with network adequacy.
Robert Miller’s statement came during a hearing Tuesday morning with lawmakers on the Commission for Government Forecasting and Accountability. Meanwhile, thousands of people still can’t see their Springfield Clinic doctors and specialists.
“It’s been over a year and a half that we’ve been out of network. They kicked us out of network. That’s fine. We get that,” said Zach Kerker, Vice President of Brand Experience and Advocacy for Springfield Clinic. “But, you’re misrepresenting whether or not Springfield Clinic providers are in-network and, in doing so, you’re misleading patients to believe there is a larger network than there is.”
