Nebraska health care decisions uncertain amid deadline

Restrictions

The company will not offer insurance plans in DE or Nebraska, the remaining two states where it was slated to provide coverage under the Affordable Care Act next year. Coverage will last through the end of 2017.

Aetna lost $450 million past year on its almost 1 million customers with individual health policies on and off the insurance exchanges. The report adds that "Aetna's exit leaves Medica as the only insurer on the Nebraska exchange and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield as the sole carrier on the DE exchange".

On Wednesday evening, company spokesman T.J. Crawford confirmed that prediction, saying Aetna would also pull out of the remaining states, DE and Nebraska, in 2018, and thus has "completely exited the exchanges".

The AP reports that USA satellite imagery suggests North Korea could be preparing to test another underground nuclear missile. Kim emphasizes nuclear weapons as the foundation of his national defense strategy.

Spokesman T.J. Crawford said to The Washington Post financial losses and "uncertainty that has surrounded the future of the exchanges for some time now. plays a significant role as well".

The nation's third-largest insurer, Aetna, said Wednesday that it will completely leave the exchanges for 2018 after projecting a $200 million loss for this year.

The corporation had discontinued its participation in Obamacare exchanges in 11 other states in 2017, according to the CNNMoney article.

Increases like that will probably will be seen in other states, too, as insurers set prices to account for uncertain support from a federal government led by a new president who wants to scrap and replace the law, said Sabrina Corlette, a research professor at Georgetown Health Policy Institute. "It also underscores the importance of Congress continuing its work to ensure all Americans can access the compassionate, patient-centered, and affordable health care they deserve". "For the consumer, they're going to see big rate hikes", Corlette said.

For 2018, Humana already announced it is abandoning the individual market, UnitedHealthcare will pull out of Virginia and Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield will stop selling individual policies in Iowa.

Another blow to ObamaCare as another major insurer drops out of the marketplace.
