Bravo Health and Aria Health to Cut Ties on August 15th, 2012

According to MSNBC, this will impact a bit less than 2,000 of Bravo’s 70,000 members in SE PA (Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs).  These members will need to change plans during the AEP for a 1/1/2013 effective date, if they wish to continue using Aria Health on a non-emergency basis.  One exception is that there is a 90-day period where members in a “treatment plan” can continue to see their existing doctors as “in network”.  This does not create a Special Election for those impacted.

State Senator Mike Stack sent a letter to Aria Health CEO, Dr. Kathleen Kinslow, urging that Aria and Bravo renew their talks prior to the August 15th date.
