Important information for Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield (Highmark) members
The region’s leading experts in digestive health are together negotiating a new contract that covers the care we provide patients with Highmark employer-sponsored, Exchange, and Medicare Advantage health plans. The practices impacted include the following: Carlisle Digestive Disease Associates (CDDA), Digestive Disease Associates (DDA), Main Line Gastroenterology Associates (MLGA), Regional GI (RGI), West Chester GI (WCGI), The Center for GI Health (CGI), Hillmont GI, and USDH at Royersford, which are all affiliated practices of U.S. Digestive Health (USDH), a growing collective of gastroenterology practices providing services in Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania. Our current contract expires on October 31, 2021. If we do not reach a new agreement, our doctors and facilities will be forced out of Highmark’s network effective November 1, 2021.
It’s important to know that nothing changes for now. You can continue to visit our facilities and doctors for care as you normally would.
