What You Need to Do about Blue Cross NC – Ensure Your Voice Is Heard

Despite repeated attempts over more than eight months to bring Blue Cross NC back to the negotiating table to ensure continued in-network access to high quality care, Blue Cross NC is forcing Mission Health and our patients’ beloved doctors and facilities out of their network as soon as October 5. And, while Blue Cross NC hasn’t responded to our multiple requests to come back to the negotiating table for our patients and loved ones, we are hopeful they’ll respond to WNC’s collective voice on September 18.

What you can do:

Sign up now to be heard September 18

Take action now – it’s your opportunity to be heard and tell Blue Cross NC you won’t let them take away your doctor.

Here’s what you need to do now to ensure your voice is heard (it’s as EASY as 1, 2 & 3!):

  1. Click here to sign up
  2. Register your social media profile
  3. Share with your friends and family

That’s it!

We’ll take care of the rest come September 18, when your message will be sent out via the social media profile(s) you signed up with so Blue Cross NC can hear all of our voices and requests to keep your doctors in network after October 5. Sign up now to be heard.

Don’t forget – change your profile picture to show your desire to keep your doctor
