Minnesota insurer to offer Nebraska, Iowa marketplace plans

May 18, 2015

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A Minnesota-based health care insurer says it will offer individual policies on and off the Affordable Care Act marketplaces in Iowa and Nebraska starting later this year.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that Medica says it won't be selling group policies in the two states. The company is based in Minnetonka, Minnesota.

It will start selling policies on Nov. 1 for coverage beginning Jan. 1, using the Midlands Choice network in both states. The network is the same one used by CoOportunity Health, of Des Moines, which has been liquidated.
