White House Proposes New Rules for Insurance Markets
In what has been a very active week for healthcare insurance, we've seen the termination of the Aetna-Humana merger and the possible termination of the Anthem-Cigna merger, collectively $88 billion in merger deals. More on that by clicking here.
Today, we've received word that the White House is proposing some new rules in an effort to stabilize the public insurance marketplaces. This on the heels of Humana's announcement, that starting next year, they will completely withdraw and will no longer offer plans on public marketplaces. Is this a sign that the current Administration may seek to "plug the holes" rather than move forward with full replacement plans? Time will tell...but until then, you can read more about today's proposed rules by clicking here.
