Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona to make network changes; cites colonoscopy cost

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona will drop Abrazo Community Health Network, based in Phoenix, on Dec. 31, unless an agreement can be reached before then.

BSBCAZ plans to drop the provider due to a disagreement over reimbursement, including ASC reimbursement. Abrazo's demand for increased reimbursement would shift the cost of colonoscopy with biopsy from $1,300 to $2,900, according to the payer.
