Hospitals and insurer fail to reach agreement; Empire not accepted at East End hospitals

Squeaky - Empire is Blue Cross Blue Shield For Town, County and State Employees.... United Health Care pays your doctor. Blue Cross pays the Hospital. I see someone else already corrected you...

Empires reimbursement rates are to East End Hospitals is riduculously low. Look at EOB when they come in the mail and see how much they pay to the hospital for your procedure or ER visit. The amount that is not covered is ridiculous. No wonder our local hospitals are in such financial turmoil." Aug 4, 09 10:53 PM

It is possible that the medevac to Stony Brook was not available due to weather, or it was out on an other call, or the eta was too long if it was at Macarthur. Brookhaven Hopsital would be the next closest Truama Center. If the patient was stable enough and the heli was unavailable, this would be where your patient would be taken." Nov 9, 10 3:32 PM
