Geary County Hospital Plans to Suspend BC/BS

Geary Community Hospital patients may not be able to use Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas soon.

The hospital says it is negotiating with Blue Cross and Blue Shield to improve reimbursement. Hospital officials say they can't continue to offer quality care and better technology with BC/BS "underpaying for its clients' healthcare."

BC/BS will send subscribers letters saying the hospital will be opting out of the provider network effective December 31st.
