Blue Cross Dropping PPO Plan for Individuals

Springfield — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois is dropping its most popular plan from its offerings on the state’s exchange.  Blue PPO has the largest network of doctors and hospitals of any plan the company offers, but the company has told the one-hundred-73-thousand individuals now on the plan that it’s being discontinued because it’s too costly.  People who have Blue PPO through their employer’s group plan will continue to be able to buy it.
