A Message from Lovelace Health System

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico plans to acquire the Lovelace Health Plan by the end of the year.

Lovelace Health System (LHS) has reached agreements with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) to acquire the Lovelace Health Plan (LHP).

Current contracts between Lovelace and the APS remain in effect.  It is important to note that Lovelace's hospitals, physicians, clinics and pharmacies are not included in the sale. Pending regulatory approval and other closing conditions, the transactions are anticipated to close approximately Dec. 31, 2013.

Additionally, LHS has reached a long-term agreement with BCBSNM that will allow members continued access to Lovelace’s hospitals and services, as well as its physicians, clinics and pharmacies. LHP will continue to provide full-service medical coverage as well as continue to process payments for APS/Lovelace members. Medical inquiries should continue to be directed to the APS Dedicated Customer Service number (1-877-232-1988) located on the back of the member’s medical plan card.

As APS is a key account of Lovelace, there will be a transition timeline for our self-funded plan. As more information is received, it will be communicated.
