by Carmelle Malkovich, Director of External Communications, Dignity Health in Arizona, (602) 406-3319 | Apr 03, 2024

Dignity Health Yavapai Regional Medical Group (YRMG) was notified this afternoon that Aetna’s interpretation of the jointly agreed upon negotiation extension period will conclude at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, rather than on Friday, April 5 at 11:59 p.m. as previously stated. 

We remain hopeful that we will reach a resolution with Aetna that benefits those we serve right here in our community, and we greatly appreciate the community’s patience and support as we work toward reaching a fair and balanced agreement. 

This current negotiation only affects Yavapai Regional Medical Group in Yavapai County, as Yavapai Regional Medical Center remains in-network and is not part of this negotiation. 

Yavapai Regional Medical Group patients should continue to work with their physicians regarding plans for care. We encourage patients to call 877-729-2669 or visit www.dignityhealth.org/aetna to stay informed about their coverage including continuity of care.
