Bon Secours is pleased to announce that we have reached a new agreement with Anthem Health Plans of Virginia, Inc. (d.b.a. Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem)) for three of our hospitals: Southern Virginia Medical Center, Southside Medical Center and Southampton Medical Center. Effective July 1, 2021, these three hospitals will be in network for Anthem.

This means our patients with Anthem insurance will have benefits when receiving services at these three hospitals starting July 1.

Access to quality health care services is vital for our community members. We are glad to have reached a new agreement that protects our patients’ access to care in their communities.

We understand that Bon Secours being out of Anthem’s network was difficult for our patients with Anthem insurance. Bon Secours continuously advocates for the citizens of our community to have access to high-quality health care in their neighborhood. At Bon Secours, our goal is to have long-term agreements with all major payers, including Anthem, so our patients can have easy access to quality care in our community. That is why we diligently worked to resolve this situation for the good of this community. Thank you for your patience throughout this process.

As the only faith-based health system in Virginia, we live out our mission to bring good help to those in need. We remain focused on investing in the health and well-being of the Virginians we serve, while ensuring that Bon Secours is a place where associates want to work, clinicians want to practice, people seek wellness and communities thrive.

If you have any questions about the details of your Anthem coverage, we recommend contacting Anthem via the number on your insurance card to learn more about your benefits.
