Professor Mark Hall, Brad Wilson (JD ’78) quoted in Winston-Salem Journal about rising Blue Cross premiums

Professor Mark Hall is quoted in a Winston-Salem Journal story, “Blue Cross premiums rising 24 percent,” written by Richard Craver and published on Oct. 14, 2016, that states, “Most consumers buying health insurance on the North Carolina version of the federal exchange will face a 24.3 percent increase in monthly premiums in 2017, Blue Cross Blue Shield of N.C. confirmed Friday.”

Professor Hall,  a nationally renowned health care expert, said in the story he is “optimistic that Blue Cross will be able to succeed in this market for the longer term.”

“The exit of several competitors will result in increased enrollment, and it appears that they have received the rate increases they need to avoid losing money.”
