UnitedHealthcare and Cigna don't plan to participate in Pa. and N.J. insurance exchanges
UnitedHealthcare and Cigna, both publicly traded managed-care companies, will not be offering products through the exchanges. Aetna (NYSE: AET) has not yet decided what it will be doing in the two states, but the Connecticut-based health insurer has already opted not to participate in several states including New York, Ohio and Maryland.
That's good ... more for the smaller insurance company's plus the Federal Exchange !

If you think this is significant, ask yourself why. These are corpoations that are in business to make money, it isn't that they have a fundamental policy disagreement. They can hate whomever is in charge at any given moment for ideological reasons, but if they stood to profit from a policy said group was advocating, they will jump on board regardless.
No, they have evaluated their markets and determined they would not profit. That is all.

....and for Blue Cross/Blue Shield
they most likely will reach out to the people they had to kick off of their Adult Basic program because the PA State government cut the program.
...but more for the Federal Exchange and smaller insurance companies so people have a choice.
Noticed a difference in ads for my local Blue Cross plan: IBC " Live Fearless" campaign featuring children, 20-30 yr old multiethnic adults in action photos. They have been active in promoting ACA law.
