Kokomo Health Provider To Reject New Anthem Patients

Rising healthcare costs have forced a medical care provider in Kokomo to close its doors to new patients covered by Anthem insurance. American Health Networks offices in Kokomo will still care for current Anthem patients, but will no longer accept new referrals. American Health Network President Ben Park says his company can no longer afford to treat Anthem patients.

Park says that his physicians have seen a decline in reimbursement from Anthem over the last several years. The decision will effect about 12 family practice offices in the Kokomo area. Park says that the decision will not affect patients served by OB/GYN’s and oncologists in the network. The policy takes effect on Saturday.
