ME allows Anthem to renew health plans due for cancellation under Obamacare

Bangor Daily News, November 27, 2013
Many Mainers facing cancellation of their health insurance can keep plans that don't comply with Obamacare for another year, under a decision issued Tuesday by Maine's top insurance official. The decision by Maine Insurance Superintendent Eric Cioppa affects at least 8,500 Mainers who buy their health insurance from Anthem BlueCross BlueShield in the "individual market," made up of consumers who can't access coverage through work or government programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Those Anthem policyholders now have another year to find a plan that complies with the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare.
