AUGUSTA, GA (March 20, 2017) – Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia customers enrolled in health plans that utilize the Affordable Care Act Pathway (or Pathway X) network in Southeast Georgia now have access to University Health Care System.

Effective March 15, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia and University Health Care System have reached an agreement which allows in-network access to University’s services including hospital, physicians and outpatient services.
