Where Government Gets Exposed

Fewer Health Care Options on the Horizon?

The NerveWill Shrader, a senior vice president with BlueCross and BlueShield of S.C., explains during a July 21 South Carolina Health Planning Committee that in 2014 some state-mandated health benefits may be eliminated.

In 2014 if you purchase coverage through a health exchange, state mandates that are not included among the federal government’s “essential benefits” would either have to be eliminated or the state offering it would have to pay for it, Shrader said.
