To the Families of our Patients Covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield

You may have recently received notification from your insurance carrier, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), that one of our physicians, Dr. Karen Walter, is no longer accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield. We are pleased to report  that the Practice has worked with BCBS to correct this administrative oversight and that Dr. Walter  is continuing to actively serve her BCBS patients here at MAPA.
