KCUR.org: HHS Senior Advisor: Health Insurance Rates Unregulated in Missouri

March 28, 2011 – Over the last year, state regulators in Oregon have ordered 20 insurance companies to either reduce or completely scrap proposed healthcare premium rate increases. The state deemed the increases – some of which exceeded 20 percent – to be too high. Other states have scrutinized similar rate hikes, but you won’t find a challenge like that in Missouri. That’s according to former Missouri Insurance Director Jay Angoff. Angoff has made a name for himself as a watchdog over the insurance industry and is now a senior advisor to HHS Secretary and former Kansas governor and insurance commissioner, Kathleen Sebelius.
