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.
