Feds to step in, regulate health insurance increases in Idaho

The federal government intends to take over the role of reviewing increases of health insurance premiums in Idaho, the Idaho Statesman reported today; the federal decision may be the first real effect of Gov. Butch Otter's executive order barring the state from carrying out any component of the 2010 federal health care overhaul. Among the reasons: Idaho can't meet the federal law's requirements for oversight on health insurance rates, in part because it doesn't disclose health insurance rate increases to the public. You can read the Statesman's full story here.
