Tufts Medical Center to break with Blue Cross

Boston Globe, January 6, 2009

Boston-based Tufts Medical Center has begun warning thousands of patients that Tufts doctors will no longer accept Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO coverage after Jan. 31. A letter to patients states that Blue Cross refuses to pay Tufts doctors at a "reasonable rate." The medical center is encouraging its patients to contact Blue Cross directly to "express your frustration."
