The Madelia Community Hospital and Clinic announced that it was not invited by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota to participate in the Medicare Blue Plus Southern MN Network Advantage plan for 2019. Despite attempts by Clinic administrators to reach out, the insurer has denied requests from MCHC and several other area hospitals to be an in-network facility. Although MCHC is an out-of-network facility for the BCBS Medicare Advantage PPO program for Southern Minnesota, people who wish to continue to use their services can still do so with the understanding that out-of-pocket costs may be higher with this Advantage plan. Patients have the option to change their plan through March 31st.
