Independence Blue Cross and Tower Health Reach Agreement on New Three-Year Contract

Statement from Clint Matthews, President and CEO, Tower Health and Anthony V. Coletta, M.D., MBA, President, Independence Blue Cross Facilitated Health Networks
Independence Blue Cross and Tower Health have agreed to a new three-year contract, effective immediately, that ensures Independence customers continue to receive in-network health care coverage at Brandywine, Chestnut Hill, Jennersville, Phoenixville, and Pottstown hospitals. Reading Hospital will also remain in the Independence network.

Providing patients, members, and communities continued access to quality, affordable care in this region is paramount for both organizations; and resolving these discussions quickly was in the best interest of members and patients.

We are confident that this agreement will serve as the foundation for a strong relationship between our two organizations.
