Health Care Thoughts: Which Law to Violate?
Citing a state notice statute, the Insurance Commissioner of California has convinced Blue Shield NOT to cancel policies which are not grandfathered under the ACA.
The policies will be extended until March 31, giving hundreds of thousands of policy holders more time to shop.
So in order to meet California law, B/S will violate federal law. Given all of the involved parties are Democrats, I don’t look for any blowback from the feds.
Policy holders who take advantage run the risk of paying double deductibles in 2014.
So the law is the law unless it is not convenient……….
