As of this afternoon, the state’s largest health insurer, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and a network of five major Connecticut hospitals, Hartford HealthCare, have yet to reach an agreement. Anthem and Hartford are continuing to negotiate contract terms; the existing contract expires at midnight tonight. If the contract expires, Anthem’s network will no longer include Hartford Hospital, The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain, MidState Medical Center, William W. Backus Hospital, and Windham Hospital. Many similar disputes have been resolved near the contract deadline.
