APS Continues to Negotiate with Lovelace Health Plan

LHP notified employers Oct. 9 it had terminated relationship with ABQ Health Partners

The Albuquerque Public Schools is continuing to negotiate with Lovelace Health Plan on its decision to terminate its partnership with ABQ Health Partners, and the doctors who are members of ABQ Health Partners and provided service to LHP members.

The district is working with Lovelace and ABQ Health Partners to encourage a better resolution and at the very least a contract extension through Dec. 31, 2012, so that employees covered by the Lovelace plan can transition to other doctors. There is, however, no guarantee that this will occur.

Vera Dallas, director of employee benefits for APS, said the district and other employers were informed by LHP on Oct. 9 that it had terminated its relationship with ABQ Health Partners and its member doctors. Dallas said that Lovelace had mailed a letter to plan members on Oct. 8 informing them that this had occurred.

The letter from Lovelace to members can be found here along with the responses to Frequently Asked Questions provided by Lovelace. The letter from Lovelace to employers who offer the LHP can be found here.
