N.C. Blues CEO Scandal Shows What Not to Do, Experts Say
October 21, 2019
In the wake of a scandal surrounding the news that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina’s CEO was arrested in a drunken driving incident back in June, the insurer has officially called off its planned “strategic affiliation” with Cambia Health Solutions.
Experts tell AIS Health that the whole saga — which came to light months after Patrick Conway, M.D., was arrested after reportedly driving erratically and striking a vehicle with his daughters in the backseat of his SUV — didn’t have to be as much of big deal as it became. And, they say, other organizations can learn from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina’s mistakes.
