SHOCKER: California’s Exchange Deliberately Blocking Competition

Comment: Will the outrages never stop?  Will the lies never end?  They said the exchanges would be models of the free market and competition in action. Well, no.

“California’s insurance commissioner says he objects ‘in the strongest possible terms’ to a decision by Covered California to block an insurer from selling policies in areas with few consumer choices.”

“Commissioner Dave Jones says Health Net wanted to sell individual policies in more than two-dozen new counties in California in both 2014 and 2015, but the effort was rejected by the health insurance exchange both times.”

[...] “The exchange had a rule not to allow new insurers into the market until 2017, with a couple of exceptions.”
