The company’s spokesman, Anthony Matrisciano, said that Blue Cross was in the midst of deciding who will go.
“We’re always adjusting staffing levels to the market,” said Mr. Matrisciano.
Currently, Blue Cross NEPA has just over 550,000 active health plans.Blue Cross Cuts 75 Employees In Northeastern PA by Harrison Barnes
