Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan ahead of pack with long-standing policy regarding insurance rescissions

Imagine planning to undergo surgery thinking you are well protected by your health insurance only to find out, just one day before you go under the knife, your coverage was dropped. That’s just what happened to a Dearborn man, and it’s a practice that needs to end here in Michigan now.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan never drops people from coverage when they become sick – a much-maligned practice called rescission – except in cases of fraud or intentional material misrepresentation.

This is yet another example of how the Blues stand as a model for health reform.
