New Federal Health Care Forces Some Policy Changes


By Alabama News Network

If your health policy doesn't meet new federal health care requirements, you may have to start shopping for another one.

That's because those policies will no longer be offered.

Alabama's Department of Insurance says it doesn't know how many policies will be affected, but the Associated Press estimates 90,000 Alabamians will have to find new policies.

Alabama's largest insurer, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, says 87,000 customers will be enrolled in new plans that meet the new requirements.
