Blue Cross overhaul makes headway, raises concerns
San Francisco Chronicle

A proposal that would end Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s tax-exempt status and transform the organization from a charitable trust of the state to a customer-owned nonprofit is making headway in Lansing, but not without critics trying to step in the path of the legislation to overhaul Michigan’s largest health insurer. Competitors and advocates for consumers and the elderly — including the state attorney general — have been attempting to change or stop the legislation, which was proposed by Gov. Rick Snyder and enjoyed widespread support in the Michigan Senate.
