PRESS RELEASE: December 15, 2020, Raleigh, NC – Green Hill Recovery, a Raleigh-based treatment provider for young adults grappling with substance use disorder (SUD), announced this week that it joined Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) as an in-network provider. This news makes public another important step in Green Hill’s ongoing effort to make high-quality substance use treatment more affordable and more accessible to families in North Carolina, and around the country.
Blue Cross NC is the nation’s second largest insurance provider, and by going in-network, Green Hill’s can provide clients and families better insurance reimbursements options and ultimately, lower the total cost of care. Going in-network is for Green Hill a reflection of the company’s desire to operate as a values-based, mission-driven organization that works to reduce the impact and burden of addiction on families. As an in-network provider with Blue Cross NC, Green Hill can build further financial transparency, and achieve a greater level of unity with clients and families.
Green Hill CEO Tripp Johnson had this to say about the Blue Cross NC news: “This partnership with Blue Cross NC is a long time in the making. I really respect that work that Blue Cross NC does to provide top-notch care for their customers and we look forward to being a leader for substance use disorder treatment in their network”
Green Hill has set a goal for 2021 to also become an in-network provider for United, Anthem, Cigna, and Humana. Green Hill joined Aetna as an in-network partner earlier this year.
Tripp Johnson added “Increasing access to quality substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health treatment is a top priority for us. We believe that developing relationships that extend beyond contractual agreements can increase the quality of care over time. We’re committed to sharing data, resources, and expertise with insurance providers to better serve our communities.”
Green Hill believes that the ongoing increase in SUD along with co-occurring mental health conditions must be met with innovation and creative solutions from the private and public health sectors. Organizations like Green Hill strive to play a key role in making the highest quality treatment options more accessible and affordable.
