(CBS Connecticut)– A nearly two-month dispute between Hartford Healthcare and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield is over, thanks to the two sides reaching an agreement Saturday on a new contract.

On October first, customers of the insurance company had to start paying higher, out-of-network fees for basic healthcare services through Hartford Healthcare. The two sides had been negotiating for over a year, but could not agree on a new deal.

The new contract is a 3-year agreement retroactive to October 1st. Anyone who had been paying higher out-of-network fees will now be able to pay the in-network charge.
