In an effort to answer many questions from our patients about our relationship with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina:
Asheville Medicine & Pediatrics is an independent practice owned and operated by the Physicians. Any issues regarding contract renegotiations with Mission Hospital and BCBS of North Carolina will in no way affect our ability to continue to see BCBS patients in our office.
We certainly hope an agreement is worked out with Mission Health System and BCBS, but we wanted to assure you that our relationship with Mission Health System is one of referral and not ownership or operations.
If our patients need to have testing or treatment offered by a hospital system we will continue to honor any choice.
We hope you find this reassuring,
Asheville Medicine & Pediatrics
We are Physicians trained in Medicine and Pediatrics having completed a four-year residency consisting of 24 months each of internal medicine and pediatrics training. The synergy of training in the two disciplines creates a unique and diverse fund of knowledge which allows us to provide the best care possible for both children and adults.
