Datapoint: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska Returns to ACA Marketplace
After originally exiting the marketplace in 2017, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska will return to the state’s ACA exchanges for the 2023 plan year. “Ever since we’ve gotten out, we’ve been analyzing, trying to figure out when is the right time to get back in. Now is the right time,” Executive Vice President Ron Rowe told the Omaha World-Herald July 22. The insurer will offer Nebraska HeartlandBlue in all 93 of the state’s counties. As of the first-quarter of 2022, four insurers currently participate in Nebraska’s exchanges: Medica (60,000 members); Bright Health (43,000 members); Centene Corp. (12,800 members); and Oscar Health (2,900 members).
