Does the Renown and Anthem BCBS fiasco have you re-thinking health insurance?

In Reno, there are very few choices when it comes to healthcare. One of the largest healthcare systems in Northern Nevada is Renown. With the recent news that Renown Healthcare was possibly going to stop accepting Anthem Blue Cross (BCBS) insurance effective August 1st, 2019, many were faced with the possibility that they may “lose” their doctor.

However,  when men are advised to get a colonoscopy at age 50 to screen for colon cancer, this often triggers a new found interest in their health and a visit to the doctor.
