Sutter Health (PAMF) and Anthem Blue Cross have reached an agreement! The County received this message from Anthem:

Good News Re: Sutter Health System
As previously communicated, Anthem Blue Cross and Sutter Health System had been engaged in contract negotiations for several months. And although the termination date for commercial business was December 31, 2018, Anthem honored a transition period to allow members to access Sutter Health physicians, hospitals and ancillary providers through March 31, 2019.

Anthem Blue Cross is pleased to announce that we have successfully renewed our Agreements with Sutter Health System.

The new multi-year contracts are effective April 1, 2019.


The Benefits Team has appreciated the patience of our County employees during this strained negotiating period.
