A Letter to our BCBS Patients (Update)

A Letter to our BCBS Patients (UPDATE) January 15, 2021 Dear Blue Cross Blue Shield Patients, Women’s Specialists of New Mexico would like to inform you that we have secured a new contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) effective January 1, 2021. We realize that some of you may have left our practice because of the lack of a contract with BCBS.  We are sincerely sorry if this has created a disruption in your healthcare. Typically, we get these types of contract disputes resolved before the end of the contract period and in this case that did not happen. We genuinely hope that you will continue to choose Women’s Specialist of New Mexico and its providers as your provider of choice. If you had canceled an appointment or need to set up a new appointment, please contact our Scheduling Department. We would be happy to help. Sincerely, Kathy Teston Executive Director
