State Auditor on NC Blue Cross’s contract with State Health Plan

Yesterday on UNC-TV’s Legislative Week, State Auditor Beth Wood took NC Blue Cross and their contract with the State Health Plan to task. Wood explained that it just wasn’t “good business” for the state to sign a contract with an entity (especially a $100 million a year contract) where the state just doesn’t have any idea what it’s paying for – and no way to check! The Auditor’s full report is here.

    Great headlines if they try to block you.

    Why wasn’t the Report released before the SHP (SB 287) vote? Hmmm….
    A source told me that it was scrubbed and that the auditor’s office had been sitting on it until after the vote! Just wondering if this info. has any credibility.

    I don’t know, but I agree, it is awfully suspicious that the report didn’t come out until a week after the vote. Too bad the auditor hasn’t been grilled on the timing of the report….
