Insurers may face credit threat if reform stands: Moody’s
Modern Healthcare

Insurers could face credit stress if the Supreme Court upholds some or all of the healthcare reform law, according to Moody’s Investors Service.

The ratings agency, in a new report, called a decision from the court to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act “a negative credit event” for insurers. The law restricts insurer revenue and introduces new regulations for the sector, the rating agency said.
