Santa Cruz County residents who have insurance coverage with Anthem Blue Cross for doctors with the Palo Alto Medical Foundation are playing a waiting game because Anthem’s contract with PAMF and Sutter Health expires Dec. 31.

“This is one of those December impasses,” said Dr. Larry deGhetaldi, who heads the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Santa Cruz and Sutter Santa Cruz, noting all of Sutter Health is affected. “We really expect these contracts to be resolved by Dec. 31.”
