Saint Francis Health System in Tulsa, Okla., is set to leave Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma's provider network by July 29 if the organizations don't reach a new contract agreement, according to ABC affiliate News Channel 8.

BCBS of Oklahoma said Saint Francis is asking for reimbursement rates at its clinics and retail locations that mirror those at its four acute care hospitals. 

"This would mean our members pay much higher rates for services at off-campus locations operated by Saint Francis," BCBS of Oklahoma told News Channel 8.
