Texas Health Resources has reportedly not yet reached an agreement that will allow patients insured through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas to remain in-network when receiving care at Texas Health facilities, including the Stephenville hospital and more than two dozen other hospitals across the region. The failed negotiations could mean a search for new doctors, specialists and mental health care providers outside of the local area beginning January 1. Texas Health Resources said its hospitals and physician groups will continue to provide services to existing patients, but out-of-pocket expenses will most likely increase for those who receive care out of network. Several health care providers who have privileges at the Stephenville hospital are not a part of Texas Health Physicians Group.
