The largest health-care provider in Virginia is dropping three area hospitals from its network.
Trigon/ Blue Cross- Blue Shield could not resolve a contract dispute with the hospitals'management.

Scott Goldberg is in the newsroom with more on this conflict.
Live=Scott Full/Microwave
SUPER=@Scott1;


Keith, Trigon has been negotiating--confidentially--with three area hospitals owned by Columbia/H-C-A.
Trigon says the hospitals made "new demands" regarding their contracts with Trigon--
Demands the insurer felt were unreasonable.
So Trigon dumped the Columbia hospitals from its network, giving subscribers three choices:
Pay more money and stay at Columbia Hospitals,
Start going to hospitals owned by Carilion Health Systems,
or get health insurance somewhere else.

That network now consists of seven hospitals owned by Carilion.
Montgomery Regional Hospital in Blacksburg is no longer part of the Trigon P-P-O Network.
Neither is Pulaski Community Hospital, nor Columbia-owned Lewis-Gale Medical Center in Salem.
Trigon expects most of the 35-thousand subscribers who used those hospitals to switch to Carilion facilities like Roanoke Memorial.
Carilion says the more business it gets, the less it has to charge insurers like Trigon.
