Obama and Insurance Commissioners Meet Over Health Plan Cancellations

The commissioners said the president acknowledged not all states would implement his proposal to let people keep their health insurance.

The president met with state insurance commissioners Wednesday to nudge them to implement his proposed Obamacare fix to allow people to keep their current health insurance plans next year.

After the meeting, the state insurance commissioners remained skeptical. They told the president his proposal could lead to higher premiums, sticking by their initial response to the announcement that it creates uncertainty and instability in the market. 

 

Obama acknowledged that some states were unlikely to implement the fix, they said, and that each state will have to do what it feels is appropriate.
