Blue Cross Blue Shield to become nonprofit? Bill approved by House committee

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - Changes for Michigan's largest health insurer could be on the way. A bill that would transform Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan into a nonprofit insurance company is one step closer to reality.  The package has unanimously passed the House Insurance Committee.  This package of bills is similar to one vetoed last year by Governor Rick Snyder.  According to state Representative Peter Lund, the bills were amended to remove abortion language, which led to the veto.  The Senate has already passed the bills, however the full House still has to vote on them.  Blue Cross Blue Shield covers roughly 70% of the state's insurance market.
