Stanford, Lucile Packard hospitals reach a deal with Anthem Blue Cross
The Mercury News

Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital have resolved a dispute with Anthem Blue Cross over reimbursement rates that had left some patients uncertain about their health coverage. The contract between the hospitals and insurer expired on Sept. 1. The new three-year agreement, announced Wednesday, is retroactive to Sept. 1, which means patients won’t be charged higher “out-of-network” prices for treatment received at the hospitals since that date.
