Blue Cross Blue Shield

Hawthorn has been getting numerous questions from our patients at Hawthorn Medical about the Southcoast Hospital/Blue Cross Blue Shield situation. We continue to accept Blue Cross insurance and are unaffected by the Southcoast/Blue Cross Blue Shield dispute. We have multiple doctors who are accepting new primary care patients. We as always are happy to see new patients. See our list of Hawthorn providers welcoming new primary care patients.
