Check out this article regarding the announcement that Anthem has calmed controversy over Colorado’s health insurance by submitting its proposed plan for 2018 to the state.
Health insurance giant Anthem announced late Monday that it has submitted proposed 2018 plans to the state, easing fears that it might back out of Colorado’s health insurance exchange and leave residents of several counties without an insurance choice.
But an Anthem spokesman declined to provide specifics on those plans — including where the company expects to offer them — meaning it remains unclear if Anthem will continue to provide coverage to the same number of Coloradans it currently does.
Monday was the deadline for insurers hoping to participate next year on the Connect for Health Colorado exchange to file their proposed plans and rates with the state Division of Insurance for review. The exchange is a one-stop shop for health insurance on the individual market — where people buy their own plans, instead of receiving coverage through an employer or the government.
