Aetna this week became the third insurer to submit proposed rates for new health plans offered later this year on Connecticut’s public health exchange.
Aetna is suing an ambulatory surgical center in Englewood, N.J., for $10 million to recoup losses in an alleged scheme to overcharge the insurer while allowing patients to forgo copays and other out-of-pocket expenses.
The state Insurance Department said Thursday it recouped $1.3 million on behalf of policyholders and collected $902,000 in fines against insurers during the first three months of the year.
Last year, 18 executives at 11 Connecticut hospitals were compensated more than $1 million, according to a database released annually by the state Office of Health Care Access.
ConnectiCare Benefits Inc. submitted its proposed rates for individual and small-group health plans that will be sold starting in October on the state’s public health exchange, Access Health CT, for coverage next year.
The Atlantic Ocean hurricane season this year is expected to be “active or extremely active,” federal forecasters said Thursday.
