Tenet, BCBS of Texas sign multi-year agreement

Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare inked a multi-year contract with Richardson-based Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas ahead of the agreement's April 15 termination date.

The contract allows BCBSTX policyholders to access Tenet's hospitals, physicians and outpatient facilities at in-network rates. It also adds Tenet's El Paso, Texas-based The Hospitals of Providence Transmountain Campus to the payer's network. 

"We are pleased to reach an early renewal on this important contract and avoid any disruption to the high-quality care that patients with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas health insurance expect from our providers," Clint Hailey, chief managed care officer for Tenet, said in a statement.
