Piedmont and Aetna/Coventry sign off on coverage agreement
Piedmont Healthcare announced Friday afternoon that it has reached agreement with Aetna/Coventry on a new three-year contract.
Under the agreement, Aetna/Coventry members will continue to receive covered benefits, at in-network rates, from five hospitals within Piedmont Healthcare (Piedmont Atlanta Hospital, Piedmont Fayette Hospital, Piedmont Mountainside Hospital, Piedmont Newnan Hospital and Piedmont Henry Hospital) and the affiliated outpatient centers/services, said Piedmont Healthcare spokesperson Diana Lewis.
Lewis said members also will have access to the more than 1,000 physicians in the Piedmont Physicians Group, Piedmont Heart Institute and Piedmont Clinic.
“Throughout negotiations, we remained committed to ensuring our patients who are members of the Aetna and Coventry insurance networks continue to have access to Piedmont’s high quality healthcare services through choice of our physicians and hospitals,” said Greg Hurst, chief operating officer for Piedmont Healthcare
