Grady Memorial Hospital and Five Oaks Medical Group have reached an agreement with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma to extend in-network participation through June 30, 2020.
This announcement came about a week before the Oct. 28 deadline, when Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma members would be out of network at Grady Memorial Hospital.
"We will continue to work with Blue Cross and Blue Shield during this extension to come to an amicable agreement for both parties," a statement from the hospital said.
Both Grady Memorial and BCBSOK stated they hope to come to a multiyear agreement.
"BCBSOK wants what's best for our members in Chickasha and surrounding communities—and that is to continue offering convenient and affordable medical care and coverage to the people in Grady County," Joseph R. Cunningham MD, BCBSOK President, said. "We are pleased Grady Memorial Hospital and Five Oaks Medical Group will stay in-network and we will continue to seek a new multiyear agreement."
