CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - After what seemed to be a parting of the ways between BCBS and the Anesthesiology Consultants of Cheyenne, the two have met an agreement. On June 30,2021, BCBS members were sent a letter informing them that the Anesthesiology Consultants of Cheyenne would no longer remain as a participating provider. Now, their partnership has been renewed.

This reconnection helps BCBS members from avoiding previously incoming fees for anesthesia use. When asked for comment, BCBS said, “The discussions with Anesthesiology Consultants of Cheyenne were productive and positive, and it was during these discussions, that the decision was made for Anesthesiology Consultants of Cheyenne to remain a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming network provider without a lapse in coverage for our members.”

It seems that the letter informing members might have made the difference. In another statement, BCBS said, “Anesthesiology Consultants of Cheyenne communicated to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming that they planned to leave the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming provider network effective July 15, 2021. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming is required to notify our members of the potential impact this may have on them. BCBSWY was very pleased when communication was received on July 22, 2021, from Anesthesiology Consultants of Cheyenne requesting to remain a participating provider within the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming networks.”

Their partnership will continue for the foreseeable future.
