Keystone Mercy Health Plan restricts patients in dispute

Philadelphia Inquirer, March 29, 2010
Thousands of Keystone Mercy Health Plan subscribers are being notified that they will not be able to use Crozer-Keystone Health System hospitals or doctors after April 30 because of a contract dispute. In news releases, health insurer Keystone Mercy said it was losing $1 million a month on its Crozer contract, while the health system said Keystone Mercy was demanding payment cuts of $12 million, or 14%. Crozer said it would be "unconscionable to jeopardize hard-fought financial stability" of the system. The two have been negotiating since 2008.
