Important Notice

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Mercy Health Care have reached agreement on a new contract for emergency room services.  EMP of Cincinnati is the new in-network emergency room service provider at Mercy Health’s Clermont, Fairfield, Harrison, Mt. Orab, Rookwood, and West locations.  Emergency room claims were not billed during negotiations and the agreement is retroactive to the dates when EMP of Cincinnati began service at these hospital locations, so members will not be negatively impacted from an out-of-network perspective.  

Columbus Radiology Corporation, Mercy Health Care’s radiology service provider, will also be an in-network provider for all radiology services at Mercy’s Anderson, Clermont, Fairfield and West hospitals and their associated off-campus locations.  This new contract is effective as of Dec. 20, 2015, and all claims incurred after this date will be re-processed as in-network claims.
