Aetna to Stop Selling Individual Health Plans in Iowa

From US News:

Aetna said Thursday that it will stop selling individual health insurance policies in Iowa, just days after Wellmark Blue Cross & Blue Shield made a similar announcement.

Tens of thousands of Iowa residents who aren’t insured through an employer or the government are currently covered by the individual policies Aetna will stop selling, the Des Moines Register reported (http://dmreg.co/2oe32Ey ).

Like Wellmark, Aetna cited instability in the insurance market. Aetna had already had stopped selling such policies in most states for 2017, citing turmoil surrounding the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare.”
