Statement from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan about Senate Passage of Individual Insurance Reform Legislation

While we are encouraged to see the legislative process continuing, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is disappointed with the bills as they are now structured. We don't believe they bring about the meaningful change and protections that Michigan consumers deserve and expect.

Throughout the process one point has become clear, that more and more people are finding themselves in need of individual coverage, but the system does little to help them. As the bills go back to the House, we are hopeful that there will be meaningful solutions on this important issue.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is a nonprofit corporation and independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
