To the valued patients and their families at Columbia Orthopaedic Group: 

Each new year always brings changes to insurance plans whether through employers, private insurance, or through the Healthcare Exchange Marketplace, and this year is no different. As has been widely reported in the news, in January several health insurance companies are discontinuing plans managed through the Healthcare Exchange Marketplace. This impacts Columbia Orthopaedic Group (COG) and its patients in significant ways. United Healthcare is discontinuing their Exchange plans completely. The plans through Blue Cross Blue Shield (Pathway or Pathway X) did not invite COG to participate with their plan—we are out of network, and these plans offer no out-of-network benefits for COG. Coventry, now under the ownership of Aetna, will not be selling marketplace plans in Missouri.

At this time, we are unaware of ANY Healthcare Exchange Marketplace plans that will participate with COG.

What you can do:

As always, we encourage you to check eligibility with your insurance plan before scheduling an appointment with one of our physicians. We also encourage you to request insurance referrals from your Primary Care Physician (PCP) if your insurance requires referrals before scheduling an appointment with one of our physicians. Please bring your insurance cards to every appointment, as even minor changes can impact the status of your claim.

We will continue to monitor the various insurance plans and, should this information change, we will post it to this website immediately. It is our great pleasure to serve your orthopaedic needs. Please contact our office with questions about your insurance: 573-443-2402 (ext 290), Rhonda Maydwell.
