Network Update: Hackensack University Medical Center Termination

The contract between Empire BlueCross BlueShield ("Empire") and Hackensack University Medical Center ("HUMC") expired on April 30, 2011. **Please note that this termination will only impact Empire HMO or HMO/POS members seeking services at HUMC. All Empire members with PPO, EPO, or Indemnity coverage can continue to access services at HUMC through the BlueCross BlueShield BlueCard Program.**  
Be assured we have you covered.  
Empire has a broad hospital and provider network in the service areas where HUMC is located and continues to have a robust network of participating hospitals, physicians, radiology centers, ambulatory centers and other providers capable of providing healthcare services for our members at numerous convenient locations throughout Bergen County and the surrounding areas. In order to make this transition as easy as possible for our members, we have included a list of alternative participating providers. As always, emergency care and emergency admissions will continue to be covered at HUMC.  
We will continue our discussions with HUMC in an attempt to bring them back into our network at a price you can afford.
