The Indianapolis Star reports that a hospital and insurance provider are involved in a dispute that may lead to an end in their partnership.
St. Francis Hospital and Health Centers are planning to sever ties with Anthem, Indiana’s largest health care insurer, due to an Indiana insurance dispute over reimbursement rates.
The hospital system’s contract with Anthem does not expire until September, but they released a statement saying they are prepared to sever ties almost a year early.
If this Indiana insurance dispute is not resolved it could affect thousands of people in Indiana who are covered by Anthem.
