While state officials agreed yesterday to allow recently cancelled health insurance plans to be extended for a year, the move may not make much difference to most individual plan holders.
A spokesman for Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, the state’s largest individual plan insurer, said that extending the most popular individual plans won’t be “viable” because they would still have to be altered to comply with other requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
As a result, it appears likely that most individual plan holders will still have to pay higher monthly premiums starting in January.
