COLLEGE STATION -- If you have the Scott and White health plan and live in the Bryan-College Station area, heads up, changes are coming.
Today the Scott and White health plan announced a new agreement with the College Station Medical Center.
Under the new contract, Scott and White health plan patients will be able to receive medical care at the Med Center when needed and it will be considered in-network.
"St. Joseph announced earlier this year that they would be terminating our contract on April 30th of 2012 and so we knew that we needed to do something to ensure that there would not be disruption for our patients in the Brazos Valley so that's why we approached the Med and we're very grateful that they were interested in working with all of us," said CEO of Scott and White health plan, Allan Einboden.
The new contract begins February first.
