New Jersey Blue Cross may cut Philadelphia hospitals from coverage

Philadelphia Inquirer, September 11, 2008

As the insurer campaigns to convert into a for-profit company, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey is threatening to cut two Pennsylvania hospitals out of its treatment networks. Horizon has notified subscribers that it is terminating contracts with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania Health System when they expire later this year. Roughly 28,000 subscribers use those facilities.
