Anthem refuses to repay claims
American Medical News

Physicians and hospitals who expected to receive a check from Anthem Blue Cross of California after a 2010 settlement over botched claims will have to keep waiting. Despite an order from state regulators, the Blues plan is refusing to pay what the state says the insurer owes doctors and hospitals.

The dispute stems from a 2008 audit by the Dept. of Managed Health Care, which regulates California’s HMOs.
