BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee will continue selling ACA plans in other regions of the state. The change will not affect seniors with Medicare Advantage plans, those enrolled in BlueCare or anyone who has insurance through an employer.
The company says it will continue to evaluate the ACA marketplace, including a possible return to offering plans statewide in 2018.
