Springfield Hospital Joins Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield’s NH Pathway Network

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire today announced four key hospitals in Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont are joining Anthem’s Pathway Network of providers.

MANCHESTER, NH — Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire today announced four key hospitals in Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont – York, Holy Family and Anna Jaques, and Springfield hospitals – are joining Anthem’s Pathway Network of providers currently serving the company’s individual market customers who purchase ACA-qualified plans. The four hospitals, located in York, Maine, Methuen and Haverhill, and Newburyport, Mass., and Springfield, Vt., respectively, will join the network effective Jan. 1, 2016.

“Having these four key hospitals join our Pathway Network helps to strengthen what is already a comprehensive hospital and physician network. We’re very pleased to be able to work with these providers and increase access to quality care outside of New Hampshire’s border to meet the needs of our members,” said Lisa M. Guertin, President of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire.

The Pathway Network includes 21 of 26 New Hampshire hospitals, reaching all 10 New Hampshire counties, plus eight acute care hospitals in Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont. The Pathway network also includes 78 percent of New Hampshire’s primary care providers, 87 percent of the state’s specialists, 87 percent of the ambulatory surgery providers, and 98 percent of the ancillary network.

Anthem was the only carrier in New Hampshire to offer plans on the exchange in 2014, and since then has brought stability and sustainable rates to the individual market. Currently Anthem offers 11 individual plans on the exchange served by its Pathway Network: four bronze plans, four silver plans, two gold plans, and one catastrophic plan. The network, which continues to exceed all New Hampshire network adequacy requirements, allows Anthem to offer health benefit plans on the exchange that are priced approximately 30 percent lower than a plan using its broader network.
