Sutter Health Blue Shield Breaking News

Many hearts sank when Sutter Health Blue Shield negotiations failed to produce an agreement on New Years Day. However Sutter Health announced good news this evening (see excerpt below):

 “I am pleased to announce that Sutter Health has come to an agreement with Blue Shield of California on a three-year renewal of our provider contract. We now have all of our health plan agreements in place for 2017.”

 In the rush to publish the good news, they missed a date typo (Jan 4, 2016). Late shoppers appreciate the news anyway.
