UC Health, Anthem Pitted in Reimbursement Dispute

UC Health and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Ohio have until April 15 to reach a new reimbursement contract, or thousands of Anthem members will become out-of-network for the Cincinnati-based health system, according to a Business Courier report.

UC Health, which includes University of Cincinnati Medical Center, recently said in a statement on Twitter that Anthem's rates were too low and that it "must stand firm on the principle that large for-profit insurance companies compensate us fairly."

Anthem, the largest health insurer in Ohio and dominant provider in Cincinnati with 550,000 members, told the Business Courier that UC Health is "already the most highly reimbursed hospital system in greater Cincinnati."
