Act Now To Protect Your Access to Hilton Head Regional Healthcare.

Consider your options if you have Absolute Total Care, Ambetter, Wellcare or Wellcare Prime.

If you count on Hilton Head Regional Healthcare to serve your healthcare needs, please be aware that Absolute Total Care, Ambetter, Wellcare or Wellcare Prime will no longer provide in-network coverage as of January 1, 2023.

The parent company of these health plans has terminated its national contract with our health system as a negotiation tactic to force massive rate reductions. If a fair agreement is not reached before January 1, 2023, Hilton Head Regional Healthcare facilities and providers will be forced out-of-network.

If you or your family members are covered by Absolute Total Care, Ambetter, Wellcare or Wellcare Prime, please consider options for your health insurance plan to prevent network disruption. This will enable you and your loved ones to maintain the same level of access to our trusted healthcare facilities and providers. Our health system has cared for this community for generations, providing high quality specialty care and life-saving services, including several services that are only available locally at our hospitals.

Our emergency rooms will remain open to all patients, regardless of coverage, and continue to treat patients with emergency medical conditions.
