We have reached an agreement with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
AMG has reached an agreement with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee (BCBSTN) on a new contract that covers the anesthesia services we provide to our patients at all of our facilities. With this new contract, our patients with BCBSTN commercial insurance will continue to have in-network access to AMG anesthesiologists and CRNAs. We are pleased to have reached a deal before our current contract expired, so that there will be no disruption in care for our patients. We have been partners with BCBSTN for 22 years, and we look forward to continuing that partnership for years to come.
AMG and BCBSTN
AMG represents 121 physicians and 397 CRNAs that provide anesthesia services to more than 220 operating rooms in 33 facilities throughout Middle Tennessee daily. We deliver general anesthesia care, as well as cardiac, pediatric, orthopedic, and OB anesthesia through sub-specialty care teams, and we provide 24/7 ICU and Emergency Room availability at the hospitals we serve. Additionally, we employ 41 RNs and other clinicians who provide preadmission screening services which support cost efficient care delivery to our patients and facility partners.
We have had a positive relationship with BCBSTN for many years, and we are thrilled that our new contract will allow that relationship to continue into the future. AMG is an invaluable piece of the healthcare delivery system in Middle Tennessee, and our partnerships with insurance companies, like BCBSTN, allow us to provide the highest quality and most affordable care to our patients. We look forward to continuing to work with BCBSTN for many years and do our part to make healthcare more affordable today and into the future.
