Michigan's Blue Cross-Blue Shield to Raise Rates
According to the Detroit Free Press Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is going to raise health insurance rates on new customers starting April 1, 2009.
The increase in fees will not impact existing customers, but as more and more Michiganders are added to the unemployment rolls and shopping around for a health insurance alternative to COBRA, they will be less likely to be able to afford Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage.
I recommend that Michiganders price out Assurant health insurance in addition to COBRA and BC/BS.
