In email from our friends at Cornerstone:

In 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will automatically re-enroll individuals of discontinued “on exchange” plans into similar plans offered by other carriers still selling in the marketplace.”

To be sure, with so many carriers ditching the marketplace for the 2017 plan year (and, perhaps, beyond), such a streamlined process makes a certain amount of sense. And as we’re also seeing, Blue Cross seems to be the one carrier still left standing in state after state.

Still, doesn’t it seem a bit…presumptuous for a government entity to so brazenly (and without much fanfare, really) automagically assume that citizens prefer that the choice be taken from them?

Or, as FoIB Allison B so wryly observes, “Anthem gets everybody.”
