Insurer and hospital reach vital agreement

Monday, January 25, 2010 - 7:47pm

Thousands of Louisiana patients can breathe a little easier tonight.

That is because an agreement between the state's biggest insurer and the biggest private hospital has been reached.

The agreement between Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana and Our Lady Health System was reached last night.

That allowed over 100,000 patients who are insured by Blue Cross to keep going to certain hospitals.

The two sides have spent thousands on billboards and television getting their stance on the issue known.

The agreement will run for a little more than two years.
