Obamacare continues to let Missourians down

Today Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City announced that it will no longer be offering individual Affordable Care Act plans in 2018. Below is Congressman Billy Long’s (MO-07) statement:

“Earlier last year I talked about the possibility of this happening, and today that possibility became a sad reality for Missourians covered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City,” said Rep. Long.“Roughly 67,000 individuals in Missouri and Kansas will have no options for coverage under Obamacare’s exchanges in 2018 due to a failing health care law that must be replaced. Missourians continue to get the rug pulled out from underneath them with skyrocketing premiums and limited choices.”
