Major health insurance companies have decided not to participate in various states in the Obamacare health-insurance exchanges.. Blue Cross, Aet

– Major health insurance companies--Blue Cross, Aetna, United, Humana--have decided not to participate in various states in the Obamacare health-insurance exchanges that will be the only place Americans will be able to buy a health insurance plan using the federal subsidies authorized under the Obamacare law.

Aetna, a fortune 100 company with $34.2 billion in revenue, has pulled out of the government-run exchanges in three states, including the state of Connecticut, where it is based.

Founded in Hartford, Conn., in 1850, Aetna withdrew its application to participate in that state on Monday, the Hartford Courant reported. The company said it was withdrawing from there and in Georgia and Maryland because limitations the state governments would impose on their rates would not allow them to make money.

“We have spent considerable time identifying those states in which we can be competitive and add the most value to the market,” Aetna said in a statement. “As a result of our analysis, we have reluctantly concluded that we will withdraw certain Individual Exchange filings for 2014, including filings in Connecticut, Georgia and Maryland.”

“This is not a step taken lightly, and was made as part of a national review of our Exchange strategy,” the company said. “Unfortunately, we believe the modifications to the rates filed by Aetna will not allow us to collect enough premiums to cover the cost of the plans and meet the service expectations of our customers.”

California

Aetna will also not participate in California’s exchange, and a spokesperson told CNSNews.com that the company never intended to do so.

“We did not

withdraw exchange plans in California, as we never planned participation nor filed [Qualified Health Plans] QHPs to participate in the California exchange,” a spokesperson said.

Anthem Blue Cross has withdrawn its bid to participate in the California's government-run Obamacare exchange marketing insurance to small businesses.

United Health Group, the largest health insurer in the United States, has taken a pass on California's individual health insurance exchange.

Aetna will stop selling health insurance policies to individuals in California all together, leaving nearly 50,000 existing individual policyholders to find new coverage by January. The company will continue to directly sell health insurance to employers in California--outside of the government exchange system.

‘If You Like Your Doctor,’ Hope Your Insurer Is Participating in the Exchange

“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period,” Obama said on June 15, 2009.

“If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period," he said. "No one will take it away

So the insurance companies can't make money so they don't want to participate. I wonder if some of the insurance is a good deal then. If the insurance companies are balking at it then it has to be.

Looks like the insurance companies have run the numbers and concluded that all the poor people and illegals who can't afford insurance now will break the system. Once they are enrolled and start taking their unhealthy junk food eating kids to the doctor three times a week because "It's Free" (for the poor who can't afford to pay and will be subsidized by Uncle Sugar)the system will collapse.

Government: all people must buy insurance
Insurance company: we can now rape people with high premiums because they must buy insurance
Government: no you must LOSE money insuring everyone for the good of the country
Insurance company: fuck you

Both are assholes. This is always going to be lose/lose.
