(HOI) – Illinoisans who use Meridian Medicaid and Medicare and utilize OSF facilities will need to find another provider, effective December 15.
In a release, OSF has issued a notice of termination to Meridian, to avoid having its contract renew with provisions that do not align with OSF’s current strategy.
“We have worked for months in good faith with Meridian to renegotiate contract language that includes acceptable provisions,” said Randy Billings, OSF HealthCare senior vice president of population health. “Unfortunately, we have not been able to reach agreement with Meridian.”
Additionally, OSF will work collaboratively with Meridian and its members, especially those currently receiving treatment at OSF, to ensure a safe and clinically appropriate transition of care as needed.
