BOSTON Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Blue Cross) and Southcoast Health System have reached agreement on a new, four-year contract that reflects our mutual commitment of meeting the needs of our members and patients across the South Coast region. The agreement will ensure that Blue Cross members can continue to receive the exceptional in-network care they are accustomed to at Southcoast Health.

The contract reflects both the urgency to address rising health care costs while providing the necessary resources required by Southcoast Health to continue investing in its clinicians, technology, and innovative services, which have earned Southcoast Health recognition as one of the top community health systems in Massachusetts.

We’re grateful for the community’s patience during our negotiations over these past few months.
