INSIDE THE FLX: Official talks local impact of failed WellNow-Excellus deal (podcast)

What happens now that WellNow Urgent Care, one of the most-readily available healthcare assets across Upstate New York, is out-of-network for Excellus subscribers? The two sides had been locked in contentious negotiations, and on January 1, 2024 the clock expired. WellNow was forced to stop accepting Excellus health insurance, which means for those who visit — they will be charged an out-of-network fee of $165 for a visit. Chief Medical Officer Dr. Robert Biernbaum is back on Inside the FLX discussing the realities of healthcare access across the region, now that such a large number of residents have been alienated.
