Quorum court chooses CoreSource over Blue Cross

The Union County Quorum Court wrapped up debate today on weeks of deliberation between incumbent health insurance provider CoreSource and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arkansas by awarding a contract to the former.

CoreSource has proven itself time and time again, the justices of the peace agreed during a specially-called meeting to vote on the issue.

The decision was a reversal from a vote earlier in this week by the Union County Public Service Committee to recommend Blue Cross to the full quorum court on the basis of approximately $40,000 in savings to the county and additional discounts.

However, the JPs leaned ultimately leaned toward CoreSource due to the lack of a firm quote from Blue Cross and what turned out to be relatively similar discounts across the board between all providers.
