Boston hospital errs with coverage notice
Boston Globe, December 4, 2007
Boston Medical Center sent a letter recently to 2,600 patients that wrongly implied they could get care at BMC only if they signed up for the hospital's insurance plan, called HealthNet. The content of the letter and the direct approach to patients enrolled with other insurers violated HealthNet's state contract, and the state will penalize the insurer by reducing the number of patients it covers.
