Statement from John Ford, Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) Deputy Commissioner of Public Affairs, regarding Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana’s withdrawal of its Plan of Reorganization and the cancellation of the LDI hearing originally scheduled for today and tomorrow.

Late yesterday evening, Blue Cross notified the LDI that it has chosen to withdraw its Plan of Reorganization. The hearing scheduled for today and tomorrow is therefore canceled, and I currently have no information regarding Blue Cross' intentions moving forward. Any questions about why Blue Cross is withdrawing should be referred to BCBSLA.
