Insurance Changes Coming To Hospital

Insurance changes are coming to Arbuckle Memorial Hospital. Starting January 1, Arbuckle Memorial will no longer be accepting Medicare Advantage Plans, also known as “Replacement Plans,” an official said.

Staci Sudberry Smith, business office director said, “We are pulling out/canceling our contracts with all Medicare Advantage Plans except the plan administered by United Healthcare (UHC). We will still accept Medicare Supplement plans (patients who have traditional Medicare and then a supplement).

“There is a definite distinction between a Medicare Supplement and the Medicare Advantage/Replacement plans. The Medicare Advantage plans replace the patient’s traditional Medicare coverage,” she said.
