The partnership between Trigon "Blue Cross Blue Shield" and Carilion Health System will continue for the next five years.
That means Trigon customers will stay "in-network" at Carilion.
Few details about the agreement are being released.
[DOUBLE BOXES=Jean & Jen/BAM;]


Business Reporter Jennifer Miele has a look at what we do know. Jen.
Jean, this deal took so long to make because Trigon wanted a bigger discount on health care costs than any of Carilion's other partners.
[LIVE=Jen full/BAM]
[SUPER=@jennifer1]


Well, they didn't get it.
According to Carilion -- Trigon is getting the same discount on health care as its other four preferred health insurance providers.
(------------------)
[SUPER=03-Roanoke/File Tape]


Trigon wanted a 27 percent discount.... Carilion was only willing to give 20 percent.
We don't know for sure if that was the agreed discount percentage, but that is what everybody else got.
And according to Carilion, everybody is now on an even playing field.
The agreement was reportedly reached after a face-to-face meeting between the heads of Trigon and Carilion.
It will last until September of 2007.
(-----------------------------)
[LIVE=Jen full/BAM]


Realize -- this deal comes two weeks after Trigon said it was done negotiating.
But the papers are signed, and that means 120 thousand Southwest Virginian's can continue to go to Carilion facilities with only a single digit percentage increase in their premiums.
