Huntsville Hospital accepts insurance from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama as we have for many decades. We're a member of Blue Cross's preferred provider network and continue to treat patients with their insurance.
Recently Huntsville Hospital announced that Cigna will become the administrator of our self insured program for our employees beginning in November. As you know, a self insured program means that we pay our own health care expenses while the program administrator handles the paperwork for a fee. Cigna will simply replace Blue Cross in this role, but it does not impact our acceptance of Blue Cross insurance in any way. In fact, we have a multi-year contract with Blue Cross and look forward to continuing to serve their subscribers in the future.
We hope this answers any questions you have or may have heard recently in the community. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to contact our public relations office at (256) 265-8317. It is our privilege to serve you at Huntsville Hospital.
