Paramount Healthcare and NorthWest Ohio Specialists are still trying to work out an agreement that would allow patients with Paramount health insurance to keep seeing NWOS doctors after Jan. 1.
Paramount sent NWOS, a specialty group that represents about 150 cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and other physicians, a termination notice in July.
Paramount has since rescinded the termination notice, but the doctors have refused to sign a new agreement until several key issues are worked out.
The two sides had hoped to reach an agreement over the last few days, but negotiators for both sides said they're still talking and probably won't have a decision until sometime next week.
