Posted: September 9, 2019

NorthBay Healthcare and Blue Shield of California have signed a multi-year agreement, welcoming back Blue Shield members who can again receive services at NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield and NorthBay VacaValley Hospital in Vacaville, and within its comprehensive network of primary care and specialty physicians.

The new contract went into effect September 1, 2019.

Under the agreement, Blue Shield’s Access + HMO and Standard PPO members will have access to NorthBay’s physician network and its two hospitals. However, NorthBay physicians and the hospitals do not participate in the Blue Shield Individual Family Plans (IFP) that utilize the EPN provider network. Blue Shield Trio HMO product is not available in NorthBay’s service area.

NorthBay Healthcare’s Health at Home/Hospice services are under separate negotiations and it is anticipated a new contract will be completed prior to the end of this year.
