A local hospital is at odds with an insurance company. Willis Knighton is arguing with Blue Cross Blue Shield over insurance payments.

If a deal can't be reached the hospital will remove its doctors from the insurance provider network on May 16th.

Patients would have to find a new doctor. The other option - patients keep their doctor, but pay their bills up front. Thousands of Bossier and Caddo Parish teachers will be affected.

Blue Cross Blue Shield’s spokesperson says, “Willis Knighton is removing its doctors from our networks because we simply cannot agree to their demand for higher payments and special terms that are unreasonable and outside of the typical provider agreement.”
