No Deal: CHI Health Now Out Of Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance Network

OMAHA (KPTM) - Midnight passed Monday morning with no deal between CHI Health (formerly Creighton Alegent Health) and Nebraska Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

That means people who use doctors under CHI's umbrella are now out of BCBDNE's coverage network.

A contract negotiation has been going since April. BCBSNE has claimed CHI has provided health care at a cost that is 30% higher than other local providers.

CHI has denied that claim and says its health care is cheaper than other local providers.
