Can someone explain to me why the new federal health care rules don't prevent insurers from dropping certain policies?
And.......Supplemental Medicare Drug Plans will see increases in premiums.
Regence BlueCross BlueShield has dropped its child-only coverage just in time for a new federal law to take effect.
The new federal law forbids health insurance companies from denying coverage to kids because they are sick.
So more and more big insurance companies like Regence BlueCross BlueShield are getting rid of child-only plans.
Local health care centers say Regence BlueCross BlueShield isn't the only company to drop child-only coverage.
Several others like Cigna and Anthem Blue Cross have as well. KEZI News Link
