Renown Health, Anthem agree on network deal

Reno, Nev.-based Renown Health and Anthem have reached an in-network agreement.

The agreement, announced Aug. 1, means Anthem members with employer-based HMO and PPO plans will continue to have in-network access to Renown hospitals and physicians.

"We are pleased to continue working with Renown to maintain and improve access to healthcare for consumers and employers in Northern Nevada," said Mike Murphy, president of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nevada.

Anthem members had faced the loss of in-network access to Renown's hospitals and services if an agreement had not been reached by July 31.
