Minnesota-based Fairview Health Services could leave Blue Cross network
Fairview Health Services will soon no longer be part of the medical provider network for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota unless they can resolve a standoff over prices. The current contract expires Aug. 23, and if a new one isn't signed Blue Cross members then would have to pay out-of-network charges at Fairview clinics. Blue Cross is Minnesota's biggest health insurer, with 2.9 million members, while Fairview is the third-biggest hospital and clinic group and owns the University of Minnesota Medical Center.
