Blue Cross Blue Shield Overhaul Legislation Approved
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A State House committee has approved legislation overhauling Michigan Blue Cross Blue Shield.
The measure converts the Blues into a nonprofit mutual insurance company. The bills do not include language restricting abortion coverage to only insurance riders, despite support of that language by Michigan Right to Life. That language was in a similar bill vetoed by Governor Rick Snyder last year.
The bills now go to the full house for consideration.
