CAMC is now back with The Health Plan after near breakup over WVU Medicine

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The Health Plan, a managed care company based in Wheeling, says it’s back in business with Charleston Area Medical Center.

“This renewal ensures all persons insured through The Health Plan will have no gaps in coverage at CAMC facilities,” The Health Plan stated.

The relationship between the managed care organization and the giant healthcare provider went in doubt earlier this year after the Health Plan announced it would unite with WVU Medicine.

CAMC in September informed The Health Plan it would terminate its contract at the end of this year. That could have affected hundreds of people insured through The Health Plan.

That situation changed over the past few days, started with a letter The Health Plan sent Nov. 27 to the state Insurance Commissioner, terminating the prior arrangement with WVU Medicine.
