Crystal Run Healthcare cans Aetna
WALLKILL – Group medical practice
Crystal Run Healthcare Monday said effective July 31, 2011, it would terminate
its physician group agreement with Aetna, Inc. after being unable to arrive
at a mutually acceptable agreement.
“We think it is extraordinary that a responsible physician group
would alarm patients in this manner more than a year before there could
be any impact to those patients. There is ample opportunity for both sides
to negotiate and Aetna is engaged in that process in good faith,”
said Aetna spokeswoman Susan Millerick.
Crystal Run is notifying the State Health and Insurance departments of the termination of the physician group agreement.
