Piedmont Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield Of Georgia Remain At Crossroads

Apr 11, 2018

Atlanta-based hospital chain Piedmont Healthcare and health insurance company Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia are at loggerheads.

 

The two failed to reach a contract agreement by their April 1 deadline. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has called both sides back to the negotiating table, but the two organizations still haven't found a way out of the dispute that's left about 500,000 Georgia patients in limbo.

 

Andy Miller, editor of Georgia Health News, told us why this disagreement occurred in the first place and if it's possible to resolve.
