From Empire Blue Cross: “We are actively negotiating a renewal deal but we have reached a point where we are proceeding with the activities to terminate our contract effective 5/1/18.  The 60 day cooling off period ends 7/1/18 , on 5/15/18 notification letters were mailed to our members. As always we are continuing our dialogue with the facility in the hopes of reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.”

Therefore as of 7/1, at the end of the cooling off period, if no deal has been reached, South Nassau will be out of the network.
