A contract dispute between health insurance provider Blue Shield of California and the Sutter Health network of doctors and hospitals is threatening to force nearly 280,000 consumers in Northern and Central California to find new doctors.

Blue Shield notified more than 139,000 customers last week that they should be prepared to leave the Sutter Health network, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday. An additional 140,000 customers are expected to receive the same warning later this month.
