Lexington Medical Center leaving Blue Cross

BlueCross BlueShield of SC’s contracts with Lexington Medical Center (LMC) facilities and its employed physicians will officially end effective March 1, 2015. This applies to any plans that use the BCBSSC Preferred Blue (PPO) network.


For the group and individual market, this impacts these product lines:

  • All small group
  • All chamber products
  • All “legacy” individual product lines (Blue Spectrum, Personal Blue Plans, Mark IV and SCHIP)

The BlueEssentials (ACA) individual plans are not affected as they use the EPO network and LMC has never been a part of this network. The State Health Plan is also not impacted.
