Here’s how you can help.

Email Blue Cross.
Send an email to Mark Werner, Vice President of Network Management at BCBSNC, and ask him to agree to meet with Mission Health to reach a deal that restores your in-network access Mission Health providers. Let him know that patients should come before profits and you demand your right to have in-network access to high-quality care.
