Blue Shield, Sutter Fail To Reach Contract Agreement
Blue Shield of California did not meet a Tuesday deadline to extend its contract with Sutter Health. The insurer has informed hundreds of thousands of its health plan members that they could lose coverage with Sutter if a new deal is not reached. Blue Shield said it still is reviewing the hospital network's contract offer.
