Stanford Hospitals To Keep Honoring Anthem Rates
On Thursday, Stanford Hospital & Clinics announced that it will continue to honor the health coverage rates of Anthem Blue Cross members, two weeks after the organizations terminated their health benefits agreement after failing to reach anÂ accord on reimbursement rates. An Anthem spokesperson said that Stanford'sÂ announcement was made "independent" from the insurer and that patients should confirm the status of their benefits and in-network rates before scheduling hospital visits.
