UGA’s Morehead writes presidents of Piedmont, Blue Cross re insurance flap

University of Georgia President Jere Morehead has penned a letter to the Presidents of Piedmont Healthcare and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, urging those companies to come to an agreement in their ongoing contract negotiations. The lack of a deal has left thousands of UGA faculty and staff, and hundreds of thousands of state employees across Georgia, in a health care quandary, having to go out of network or pay higher out of pocket costs for health care services and treatments. President Morehead says the “disruption is very challenging to our institution and jeopardizes the health and financial stability of your UGA clients.”
