Anthem to stop selling Obamacare plans in Wisconsin.

This was just marvelous news - after what LLNL did to retiree health plans. What are we going to have left to turn to when the last insurer bolts? Not just Wisconsin, carriers across the county are leaving the system.

What is this doing on a LLNL blog?

Wisconsin and LLNL both have the letter "N" in their names.

So there's that.

Not sure, but the best impartial information site on this complex issue is Kaiser Health News a nonprofit news service covering health policy issues at the federal and state level. It is an editorially independent program of the Kaiser Family Foundation...

Another politicized blog post. Please stop.

For one, we know LANL is considering terminating the current health insurance program instead giving employees an annual stipend to be used for ObamaCare. One manager in the LANL benefits office told a group of employees that we can count on it happening.

Maybe knowing that ObamaCare is indeed imploding might dissuade Lab Benefits from making such a catastrophic mistake.

The last post is a lie. A federal high tech employer will not drop employer health care. Troll fail.

In case you missed it LANS is NOT a federal employer.

No one said anything about dropping health care, 4:09/4:11 am (obviously the same guy). SWITCHING to ObamaCare.

If you think the only nuclear weapons pit production is not a federal facility, you are mistaken. Yes it is run by a contractor but it will never drop employer provided employee health care. Much too dangerous of a precedent that flies in the face of democrat preference for universal coverage.

Never happen during these culture wars.

The LANL physical plant is owned by the Feds but buildings don't make decisions, managers do.

LANL is managed by contractors in accordance with the operating contract. Nothing in that contract prevents changing the health care plan or the insurer. NOTHING. In fact, LANL management has changed health care insurers before. Note the operative word is change. No one, except you, used the word "drop".

Even if some Dems want the Gubm't to run health care it isn't going to happen. Look at the disaster the Gubm't-run VA health care has been. Besides, the Dems are completely out of power.

Seems like you are really just arguing against ObamaCare. Good for you.
