Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) today issued a statement in reaction to Blue Cross Blue Shield leaving the health insurance marketplace under the Affordable Care Act in Nashville and other areas in Tennessee.

“I'm disappointed about Blue Cross’s decision. The health care exchanges are working in many other states, but our state is turning down billions of dollars that would stabilize our health insurance market,” Rep. Cooper said. “I’m thankful that Nashvillians still have options in the marketplace, but it’s clear we need Insure Tennessee now more than ever.”
