OSF hospitals in Danville and Urbana have reached agreement with Healthlink. That means state employees and others covered through HealthLink can receive care at these hospitals with their full benefits available. The new agreement was signed retroactive to Feb. 1. Any care that eligible HealthLink members got at those hospitals dating back to Feb. 1 now will be covered at in-network rates. That was the date that OSF Healthcare acquired Sacred Heart Medical Center in Danville and Heart of Mary Medical Center in Urbana.
OSF and HealthLink have been negotiating for months. OSF came to terms with several other insurers covering people in East Central Illinois fairly quickly.
