Maine Law Leads Insurers To Leave State


A Maine law that requires health insurers to use community rating for employer groups of up to 50 people is driving group health insurers out of the state. At least six have left so far this year, when the state began barring insurers from using existing (some say "pre-existing") medical conditions to set premium rates, which must fall between minimums and maximums that are established by the state.

Fourteen group insurers remain in the state.
