Health insurance No. 1 Minnesota issue
ST. PAUL—Preferred One dropped out. So did UCare. Blue Cross Blue Shield stopped offering its regular policies. Medica says it no longer will supply insurance for a state-run health insurance program.
"We almost lost all of the private insurers over the summer," Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton said.
Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman says the trend may continue, offering the prospect of no health insurance policies being available for private purchase late in 2017 unless state legislators take action.
