Los Angeles chooses Anthem plan that excludes Cedars-Sinai, UCLA

The city of Los Angeles has chosen an Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of California narrow network plan, which excludes Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and UCLA Health System, for its employees. The Los Angeles Times reported that Anthem cut the two prestigious providers because of their high costs, which are as much as 50 percent more than competitors, but don’t offer measurably better quality of care.
