State official says Coventry Care must continue paying for services at ARH for 30 days

A state official says an insurance provider must continue paying for members to be treated at ARH facilities for 30 days.

The Lexington Herald reports Coventry Care was notified by letter that they cannot discontinue coverage for them as of May 4th.

Officials say that would have affected thousands of patients and caused layoffs at ARH.

Meanwhile, a federal judge has ordered the two sides to meet and try to settle their differences.

That begins Thursday morning.

Some have called on the governor to resolve the dispute.
