66,000 Tennesseans to Be Notified Their Health Plans Are Ending

Sixty-six thousand Tenneseeans are about to be informed by their insurer, Blue Cross Blue Shield, that they’ll need to switch plans because of Obamacare’s minimum-coverage mandates. The remainder of the company’s 106,000 policies in the state were grandfathered in.
