Gov. Phil Bryant Modifies Executive Order In Hospital Dispute
(Jackson, MS) Governor Phil Bryant modified an Executive Order, which had previously required Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Mississippi to temporarily reinstate ten Mississippi hospitals pending an investigation by the Department of Insurance.
As modified, the Order no longer requires action on the part of Blue Cross or the hospitals, but the Department of Insurance is still required to conduct a hearing or to submit a report to the Governor on why no hearing is necessary.
Blue Cross also voluntarily dismissed its related federal lawsuit today.
