LEWISTON, Maine — Central Maine Healthcare has won.

On Friday evening, Superintendent of Insurance Eric Cioppa ruled that Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield can not exclude Central Maine Medical Center and its partner hospitals from a new, so-called “narrow network” insurance policy with MaineHealth.

Anthem will have to redraft and present a new plan to the state for approval.
