WASHINGTON, DC – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) today commented on Humana’s decision to exit the exchanges under Obamacare in 2018. The decision follows past statements by the insurer that they would be re-evaluating their future within the exchanges.
“Humana isn’t the first insurer to flee Obamacare, and unfortunately, they probably won’t be the last. Today’s announcement reflects the realities of a failing law. Patients and families across the country are seeing fewer choices and facing higher costs. While some Obamacare proponents refuse to confront reality, House Republicans have a Better Way to reform our health care system that puts patients first, and will deliver quality, affordable health care,” said Chairman Walden.
