UnityPoint Health - Methodist to Participate in Blue Cross and Blue Shield...

UnityPoint Health – Methodist will become part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois PPO Network, one of the largest PPO networks in the state, beginning January 1, 2018. 


This means that thousands of Blue Cross members will now be able to utilize their in-network hospital benefits at Methodist, including its Emergency Department, Cardiovascular Services, Surgical Services, and more.

UnityPoint Health – Proctor, UnityPoint Health – Pekin, and UnityPoint Health's physician clinics and home care services are already part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois PPO Network.

In addition to Methodist's emergency, cardiovascular, and surgical services, subscribers will now have in-network access to:

  • the most advanced and comprehensive Behavioral Health services in the region;

  • a state-of-the-art Maternity Center with all private rooms, 24/7 obstetric and neonatology coverage, and a Level 2 neonatal nursery;

  • advanced technology, like robotic lung surgery and the nation's first hospital-based hybrid Interventional Radiology suite;

  • a leading Radiation Oncology Center and Comprehensive Cancer Services;

  • a Level 2 Trauma Center; and

  • the area's only autologous Bone Marrow Transplant Program.

Methodist will also participate in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois BlueChoice® network, providing access to individual members participating in BlueChoice® products. 

The providers of UnityPoint Health participate in most major health plans. We have contracts with many area employers, HMOs, PPOs, insurance companies and government agencies including Medicare and Public Aid. 

Please contact your employer or your insurance company before services are performed if you have questions about your coverage.
