“I`ve received calls and texts from employees, spouses of employees, friends of mine who are in the West Virginia health plan, who were very worried about not having health care in the (Kanawha) Valley, and that`s not the case,” Upton said. Of the agreement between The Health Plan and CAMC, Condia said WVU Medicine representatives “think it`s a good thing and a good outcome for the people served by The Health Plan in Charleston.” He added that it would have no impact on a possible partnership between WVU Medicine and The Health Plan in the future. Pennington said he expected the deal with WVU Medicine not to be well done, but he didn`t expect the contracts to be terminated. Camc (Charleston Area Medical Center) has informed The Health Plan, a Wheeling-based health insurance organization, that it will terminate its contract at the end of this year, affecting several thousand residents of the state in 14 counties in Southern West Virginia covered by the provider. “CAMC shares our commitment to better health. They offer a full range of high-level services — including one of the best cardiac programs in the United States,” said Jason Landers, senior vice president of The Health Plan. Marshall Health, Cabell Huntington, Wheeling Hospital, Weirton Hospital, we have contracts with everyone,” he said. “CAMC is the only one to have sent us a resignation.” CAMC and The Health Plan, based in Wheeling, are terminating their agreement at the end of the calendar year, which will affect those who have the plan in the private sector, but Cheatham has managed to convince both companies to continue their agreement with PEIA until the end of June 2020. For their part, officials from The Health Plan did not mention a future link with WVU Medicine.

However, in a press release issued this week, they said the company “remains committed to building an integrated nationwide financing and health care network that will encompass all major health systems.” “CAMC has a long-standing relationship with WVU Medical School and we remain committed to our education to teach and train their medical students in grades 3 and 4. We will continue to work together on clinical trials and research, and wherever cooperation is useful,” the press release said. . . .
