Massashusetts government has to order health insurers to offer policies

Let us look one more time at how Obama care in miniature is working out in Massachusetts. See here for details as the latest series of events plays out three years after a health care plan was instituted in Massachusetts.

Non-profit insurers in that state had lost money in 2009 and requested a rate hike which was denied by the authorities in Massachusetts and at the old rates refused to offer policies. No problem- the state simply ordered them to offer policies.At this writing ( 4/10/2010)the matter is in court.

Actually, we will probably get more looks as the Mass mess really derails.
