Hospital group owns benefits company

Charlotte Observer, June 28, 2010

 Carolinas HealthCare System co-owns the company it uses to administer health benefits to its roughly 30,000 employees. The Charlotte-based hospital group denies that poses a conflict of interest. But in a similar arrangement 80 miles to the northeast, some employees at N.C. Baptist Hospital took a different view. They filed a lawsuit against the Winston-Salem hospital, arguing that Baptist didn't look out for the best interests of employees when it chose a subsidiary named MedCost to administer their medical benefits.
