Wellmark returning to ACA in Iowa

Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Iowa announced Monday several options to provide individual and family coverage in Iowa. 

"Our members, our agents, and most recently Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Insurance Commissioner Doug Ommen, have asked Wellmark to offer individual and family coverage in this market," the company said in a news release announcing the move.

Wellmark will offer fully ACA-compliant products on the public exchange for 2019, assuming there aren't any significant changes to the Affordable Care Act, and explore additional options outside of the ACA for Iowans, if state and federal rules allow.

Wellmark announced its withdrawal in April 2017.
