uninsurable http://kuer.org en Utah May “Walk Away” from State High-Risk Health Insurance Pool http://kuer.org/post/utah-may-walk-away-state-high-risk-health-insurance-pool <p>Utah is telling the federal government it’s not willing to take on more of the risk and the cost of insuring people with pre-existing health conditions. The US Department of Health and Human Services wants to cap federal spending on state-run high-risk pools because they are running out of funding. The Utah Governor’s office has until Friday to decide whether to absorb those costs in the state, or transition enrollees into a federal program – which they say will cost more out of pocket.</p> Thu, 09 May 2013 21:59:12 +0000 Andrea Smardon 29049 at http://kuer.org Utah May “Walk Away” from State High-Risk Health Insurance Pool
