RENO, NV (KOLO) - Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Renown Health have announced an agreement on a new contract.

The deal will allow Anthem members to continue to have in-network access to all Renown hospitals and physicians. It applies to Anthem consumers enrolled in employer-based HMO and PPO plans and provides continued in-network access to Renown affiliated care providers and facilities.

“We are pleased to continue working with Renown to maintain and improve access to healthcare for consumers and employers in Northern Nevada. Our members remained our number one priority as we worked hard and in good faith to find common ground and reach an agreement that helps achieve greater affordability,” said Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nevada president Mike Murphy.

Anthem and Renown had been negotiating since Anthem issued a termination notice in February.
