Fla. clinic drops Blues
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Jan. 22, 2007
Nemours Children's Clinic, which operates pediatric clinics in the Florida cities of Orlando, Jacksonville and Pensacola, says it is no longer a part of the BlueCross BlueShield of Florida network.
The clinic dropped the Blues plan after the two sides could not come to a contract agreement by a Jan. 1 deadline. Spokespersons for the Blues plan say it hopes to be able to get a deal with Nemours again. For now, Blues members can only see Nemours doctors on an out-of-network basis.
