Indiana-based St. Francis threatens split with Anthem

Indianapolis Star, October 14, 2008

Tens of thousands of Anthem customers could face higher healthcare bills or disruptions in service if they seek care from Indiana-based St. Francis Hospital & Health Centers after Nov. 2. That's when the hospital system plans to sever ties with the Anthem in a dispute over reimbursement rates. St. Francis' contract with Anthem does not expire until September, but the Catholic hospital system said it is prepared to sever ties with the insurer almost a year early.
