Harrison’s letter to Regence customers

Harrison sent a notice Friday to its patients covered by Regence with a letter from interim Harrison President Joe Kortum. (Longtime CEO Scott Bosch retired last month).

The letter also lists insurance still accepted by Harrison, with a suggestion that Regence customers to talk to their employers about switching carriers during the next enrollment period.

Here’s the full letter to patients:

  1. I find myself extremely disappointed.
    The nurses and doctors have provided great care for my partner since 2003. Hopefully, she will not require care soon.
