Anthem patients to receive in-network care at Maine Medical Center for another 2 years

Anthem patients to receive in-network care at Maine Medical Center for another 2 years

Maine Medical Center in Portland will stay in Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s care provider network for the next two years, the hospital and insurer announced Wednesday.

The agreement comes after the hospital announced in April that it was dropping Anthem customers from its in-network coverage starting Jan. 1, 2023.

The lifting of in-network coverage by Maine’s largest hospital would have affected the coverage of many Mainers including state employees who are insured through Anthem.
