Blue Cross of Idaho has decided to take Governor Butch Otter up on his unprecedented challenge to the ACA. They are adding 5 new plans to their line up called “Freedom Blue”. The prices will differ based on health, and the healthier you are the less it will cost. They claim that the cost could be up to 50% less than ACA plans.
The White House has decided to wait to see how Idaho’s experiment will pan out before they take any action one way or another.
Much like the president, we’re going to have to wait to see the consequences of this move. Could it bring cheaper healthcare? Could it adversely affect the sick and the poor? Only time will tell.
