Deal reached between Blue Cross and Children's Hospitals and Clinics

08 Juillet 2017

- Children's Minnesota and major health insurance company Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota have reached an agreement that would keep Children's Minnesota as an in-network provider for Blue Cross patients.

Children's blamed Blue Cross for the short-lived contract termination, citing the 31 percent cut to Medicaid reimbursement the insurer demanded, and the denial of future rate increases tied to inflation. Blue Cross accused Children's of being an unreasonably expensive health care provider.

All of that was in the past the parties said during a news conference Friday in Minneapolis.

Washington Wizards reportedly interested in Jamal Crawford
He is now officially a free agent and Crawford has been linked to several playoff teams, including the Warriors and Cavaliers . According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, the Hawks have agreed to buy out Crawford's contract, making him a free agent.

Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson helped negotiate the final agreement.

Representatives of both groups said they worked together even after the old contract expired to make sure the impact to patients was as minimal as possible.
