Health insurance co-op Community Health Alliance has partnered with Capella-Saint Thomas Health System, the joint venture between local hospital owners Capella Healthcare and Saint Thomas Health.
The partnership adds to the insurer's network the joint venture's four upper Cumberland hospitals: River Park Hospital in McMinnville, Highlands Medical Center in Sparta, DeKalb Community Hospital in Smithville and Stones River Hospital in Woodbury.
Locally, nonprofit and member-owned CHA already had Vanderbilt University Medical Center, TriStar Health and Williamson Medical Center in its networks. CHA launched last year and is expected to make a dent in the local insurance market through the federal health insurance exchange this year, with some of the cheapest insurance premiums in Nashville.
