Staff report



RICHMOND, Ind. — Reid Health and MDwise have reached a contract agreement that will make Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace insurance plans in network for Reid Health Physician Associates (RHPA) in 2017.

The agreement allows individuals who are in the care of RHPA caregivers with an ACA plan through MDwise Marketplace to continue receiving outpatient care with their physician. Also in-network now will be lab services at RHPA practices and radiology services at the Whitewater Valley Imaging in Connersville. Radiology services performed at the Reid urgent care locations in Richmond, Connersville and Eaton, Ohio, as well as the Reid Orthopedics Center in Richmond will also now be considered in-network.

“We’re excited to add Reid Health Physician Associates to our network for MDwise Marketplace members. This partnership with Reid provides even more high quality healthcare providers for our members,” said Cesar Martinez, president and CEO of MDwise.

“Reid Health Physician Associates is pleased to join the MDwise network of providers,” said Craig Kinyon, president and CEO of Reid Health. “This partnership allows individuals to explore MDwise as an option for affordable health care, while remaining under the care of their trusted Reid physician.”

While Reid Health Hospital is not in the MDwise network at this time, Reid’s Emergency Department is covered for Emergency Care per the agreement.
