Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City Announces it will not offer Individual Affordable Care Act (ACA) Plans in 2018

Kansas City, MO. – May 24, 2017

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) today announced the company’s decision to not offer or renew individual Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans in the company’s 32-county service area in Kansas and Missouri for 2018. This decision will affect Blue KC members with both on- and off- exchange individual plans but does not affect individual plans that were purchased on or prior to October 1, 2013.

“Since 2014, we’ve expended significant resources to offer individual ACA plans to increase access to quality healthcare coverage for the Kansas City community,” said Danette Wilson, President and CEO of Blue KC. “Like many other health insurers across the country, we have been faced with challenges in this market. Through 2016, we have lost more than $100 million. This is unsustainable for our company. We have a responsibility to our members and the greater community to remain stable and secure, and the uncertain direction of this market is a barrier to our continued participation.”

Blue KC has more than 1 million members, and this will affect approximately 67,000. This decision will not affect 2017 coverage. It also does not affect Blue KC members who are covered under one of its “grandfathered” or “grandmothered” plans. These plans were purchased on or prior to October 1, 2013. Additionally, members who receive coverage through their employers, as well as those who purchased a Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, short-term or student health plan from Blue KC, are not affected.

“This decision is necessary at this time, but we’ll continue to work with federal and state legislators to identify solutions that will stabilize the individual market and bring costs down for our members, the community and Blue KC,” said Wilson.

For more information, call 1-888-737-7086. Affected Blue KC members will be notified via mail by Blue KC by July 1, 2017.

Now it's TrumpCare's turn.

Hope he can make something better and more stable. Good luck. Just like he said, healthcare is a lot more complicated than people think.

How is that wall coming?

Maybe we should just call it Putin care?

Putin don't care.

Not looking forward to the midterm elections, every idiot on MSNBC is going to get elected.

Don't worry 1:01, after the Dem's get elected and institute Single Payer Healthcare, it'll be utopia.

I'm not against the welfare of others, I'm against paying the welfare of others. While Trump may not have a perfect replacement up his sleeve, Obamacare as-is will continue to fall into despair. If you want socialized medicine, prepare for the government to be the same.

Thanks to eight years of diligent and articulate work on health care the Democrats can now blame Trump for the problems they created. Their constituents are suckers for the twisted logic they are applying to damn near everything. Unfortunately America is watching. If they think Trump is erratic wait until the public judges the libtards juvenile antics at the voting booth. Soros won't find enough folks at Central Casting to cry the tears.

Obama Care or ROMNEY CARE ITS SIMILAR WAS BOUND TO FAIL THE DEDUCTIBLE IS TO HIGH THE HEALTHY PEOPLE DON'T BUY THE IN,THE PREMIUM WILL KEEP RISING

Anonymous said...

Obamacare is designed to fail. The replacement will be a VA like system for everyone - except the politicos/elites. They will have their own system and providers. Oh ye suckers!

It's not really a federal government problem. Block grant the states and let them experiment with different solutions to making sure everyone has access to at least basic care. At most, the feds should provide subsidies for those who can't afford even a catastrophic care policy.

Anonymous said...

^^^What's catastrophic care? The $100/month policies of days long gone? Where you had coverage for something like $50k and above? Last I checked that worthless obamacare site, I was quoted $900/month for a policy with around $19k yearly deductible, 60/40 after that. F that. There needs to be massive medical-industrial complex reform. I just pay Dr./tests/surgery/imaging out of pocket. Hasn't even begun to approach what my yearly would be. If I have a major crisis? Guess I'm medically bankrupt, but I would be just as much on the exchange as off. $100k hospital bill at the end of the year would cost me $62k on on the exchange, $100k off (assuming nothing could be negotiated with the hospital). Either of those numbers takes the rest of my life to pay off. Medical bankruptcy can not be discharged either.
