BlueCross preps Knoxville exchange return | Nashville Post

In a letter Tuesday to Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Julie McPeak, BlueCross President and CEO J.D. Hickey wrote that his team's plan to maintain a marketplace presence in Knoxville is "an extension of our mission to serve our fellow Tennesseans" and comes after more favorable early 2017 results, due in part to big premium hikes.
In his letter, Hickey also warns that possible legislative and regulatory changes - as in the American Health Care Act - means the company will need to price in downside risks next year, "even at the prospect of a higher-than-average margin for the short term, or until stability can be achieved." Hickey also is reserving the right to not follow through on its plans should the market situation change after it submits its 2018 proposals, which are due soon.
