Lifting contract clause helps Connecticut hospitals serve uninsured

Hartford Courant, March 3, 2010

Three hospitals signed contracts with a Connecticut health insurance program since the state's largest insurer lifted a clause in its own contract with hospitals. Roughly 13,000 uninsured adults covered by the Charter Oak Health Plan are now able to get treatment in a hospital in all of the state's eight counties. Windam Hospital, Day Kimball Healthcare in Putnam and Middlesex Hospital all signed contracts with Charter Oak since late January, the attorney general's office announced. The contracts were signed after Attorney General Richard Blumenthal reached an agreement with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Connecticut, the Hartford Courant reports.
