CT children's hospital, insurer settle lengthy contract dispute
The state's largest health insurer and Connecticut's only specialized children's hospital ended a bitter contract dispute late Monday night that had left many patients scrambling since mid-April to make sure their children would continue to receive care. North Haven-based Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Connecticut and Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford announced their new contract Tuesday after operating without an agreement since April 15. Both parties said the agreement will retroactively cover services at CCMC and at its related specialty group as in-network—allaying concerns for Anthem customers who faced having to pay out-of-network rates.
