NORTH PLATTE – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following an announcement by Blue Cross Blue Shield that the company would exit the Affordable Care Act marketplace in Nebraska.


“This is further evidence that the Affordable Care Act was bad policy.  When solid companies like Blue Cross Blue Shield pull out of the market, something is structurally wrong with the system.”
