About 145K Blue Shield members to be notified of Sutter Health contract expiration

Thousands more who bought individual insurance and live within 15 miles of a Sutter facility may also be affected. The contract that covers all these folks expired Dec. 31, after negotiations between Blue Shield and Sutter broke down New Year’s Eve.
