Anthem Blue Cross told it can't end contract early

Indianapolis Star, April 2, 2009

A Marion, IN, Superior Court ruling has stopped Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield's attempt to terminate its contracts early with St. Francis Hospital, allowing 2.5 million Indiana residents to continue to pay in-network costs for treatment at St. Francis and its affiliates. Anthem had sought to end its contract with St. Francis on May 1, but the ruling by Judge Patrick L. McCarty means people with Anthem health insurance can continue to get treatment at St. Francis Hospital and Health Centers at the in-network rate, at least until the current agreement expires Sept. 1.
