Nebraska’s Individual Health Insurance Market In Trouble

A May 12th article by the Washington Post* pointed out that Nebraska and Iowa are leading the nation in the demise of the individual market. “The insurance markets in two states [Nebraska & Iowa] are now hanging by a thread, held together at this moment by a small, Midwestern plan [Medica] that most people had never heard of before,” said Larry Levitt, a vice president at Kaiser Family Foundation. “The big national insurers have essentially abandoned the marketplaces, and they were very skeptical to begin with.”
