Georgia health insurance decision could have major effects

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, April 8, 2010
The state insurance commissioner ruled that Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Georgia cannot bar eligible doctors from joining its insurance network, an action that potentially could provide more healthcare choices for Georgians. Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine's decision addressed a complaint by Northeast Georgia Cancer Care that the insurer had wrongly barred its group of doctors from joining its Health Maintenance Organization network. Oxendine ruled that the "Any Willing Provider" state law prohibited Blue Cross/Blue Shield from rejecting an eligible healthcare provider's application.
