Concord Hospital to Join Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Pathway Network

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire and Concord Hospital today announced the hospital and its specialist and professional provider group, Concord Hospital Medical Group, will join Anthem’s Pathway Network of health care providers currently serving the company’s Health Insurance Exchange consumers. Concord Hospital and Concord Hospital Medical Group will join the Pathway Network effective Oct. 1.

“Having Concord Hospital and its medical group join our Pathway Network helps to strengthen what is already a comprehensive statewide hospital and physician network,” said Lisa Guertin, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in New Hampshire. “We’re very pleased to be working with Concord and its physicians to provide our consumers in the greater Concord area access to new health care options.”

"Concord Hospital is pleased to be joining the Anthem Pathway network,” said Scott Sloane, chief financial officer at Concord Hospital. “We look forward to having Concord Hospital and Concord Hospital Medical Group in the Anthem Pathway network to expand coverage for patients choosing insurance on the Marketplace Exchange. We anticipate this will be good news for our patients, as we expand coverage options and continue to provide high quality clinical care within our community."

The Pathway Network now includes 24 out of 26 hospitals in all 10 New Hampshire counties, plus key hospitals in Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont. The statewide network also includes approximately 95 percent of the state’s primary care providers and specialists, 87 percent of ambulatory surgical centers, and 98 percent of ancillary providers.

Anthem was the only carrier in New Hampshire to offer plans on the exchange in its first year of existence in 2014 and has continued to offer plans every year that provide consumers with access to care across the entire state. The Pathway Network, which continues to exceed all New Hampshire network adequacy requirements, allows Anthem to offer health benefit plans on the exchange that are priced approximately 30 percent lower than a plan off the exchange.
