St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville, Ind. and St. Mary’s Warrick Hospital in Boonville, Ind. have been a part of the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s provider network since January 2014.
The St. Vincent Medical Group has nearly 200 office locations around Indiana, with physicians practicing in more than two dozen specialties, including cardiovascular care, obstetrics and gynecology and primary care.
“We are pleased to announce this addition to our exchange network, which was made based on feedback from our customers,” said Dave Lee, M.D., vice president for provider solutions for Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Indiana. “The services St. Vincent provides and its geographical reach will benefit consumers who choose an Anthem insurance product on the exchange. “We are committed to offering quality health insurance options that provide value and are tailored to the individual needs of the consumer.”
