Blue Shield, Monarch Accuse Each Other of ‘Misleading’ OC Patients
Voice of OC

Blue Shield of California and Monarch HealthCare are accusing each other of “misleading” Orange County patients about availability of coverage next year. At issue is the length of time Blue Shield coverage will continue for patients whose doctors are part of the Irvine-based Monarch HealthCare group. Blue Shield issued a news release Thursday asserting that Monarch is falsely telling about 20,000 Blue Shield commercial and Medicare patients they must immediately switch health plans to keep their current doctors.
