Blue Cross of Florida ordered to pay doctors

Miami Herald, April 21, 2008

The Third District Court of Appeals has ruled that Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida must pay pathologists for their professional services. The decision could affect 11 similar cases, and affirms a jury's decision to award $1.5 million to the South Florida doctors who make up Palmetto Pathology Services. Blue Cross Blue Shield had paid pathologists a professional fee until 1999 when it decided it would pay for only lab services, but the pathologists insisted that they are entitled to a fee for analyzing results.
