–LRGHealthcare’s mission is to provide quality, compassionate care and strengthen the well-being of our community. In order to meet that mission in today’s challenging healthcare climate, we must continue to be innovative in our approach to providing services.
In 2011, LRGHealthcare became an Anthem Site of Service Benefit provider, which offers qualifying subscribers access to no-cost, low-cost, out-of-pocket expense for laboratory and/or surgical services within the LRGHealthcare network. In January of this year, LRGHealthcare struck a similar partnership with Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, which qualifying subscribers to the Harvard Pilgrim Best Buy-LP Plan can now experience similar savings.
“We are pleased to participate in these programs,” states Senior Vice President of Provider Relations and Contracting Andy Patterson. “People need to know if they have Harvard Pilgrim’s Best Buy – LP Plan or Anthem’s Site of Service benefit, they can save money by asking their doctor to send them to LRGHealthcare for lab tests and outpatient surgery. You do not even have to be patient within our network practices to benefit from these savings.”
LRGHealthcare’s network represents Lakes Region General Hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital and 22 affiliated medical providers and services. We offer six, convenient laboratory locations, located throughout the Lakes and Three Rivers Regions and four surgical centers located in Franklin, Gilford and two in Laconia.
“Our goal is to provide a positive healthcare experience from start to finish,” Patterson continued. “It begins with a choice to use a healthcare network you know and trust, and ends with peace of mind knowing that no matter where you go within our network you can potentially save thousands of dollars for healthcare services—I would call that a win-win situation.”
