Anthem Blue Cross wins appeal over Children’s Hospital Central California bill
Fresno Bee

Anthem Blue Cross has scored a victory in a multimillion-dollar dispute between the health plan and Children’s Hospital Central California that seven years ago forced many poor Valley families to travel miles for care.

But a recent court ruling in Blue Cross’ favor doesn’t end its five-year-old legal fight with Children’s. Instead, the 5th District Court of Appeal in Fresno ordered a new trial between the health insurer and the hospital to settle damages.
