Today, the temporary contract extension between Enloe Hospital and the insurance company Anthem Blue Cross will expire at midnight, unless negotiators reach a deal.
Both sides have agreed to extend their contract on the day of the deadline several times now.
The contract was originally terminated as a bargaining tool, over several disputes, including compensation for physicians.
The CEO of Enloe says that it's only fair and reasonable that if Anthem Blue Cross pays physicians in Sacramento a certain amount, they should pay a competitive amount here in the North State so Enloe can recruit and retain physicians.
A spokesperson with Enloe says about 10% of Enloe patients use Anthem Blue Cross.
