Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan President Daniel J. Loeppe announced that the company has decided to "move on toward the future" and continue offering only Affordable Care Act-compliant plans for 2014. One non-compliant individual plan will remain available next year.

"We are discontinuing our noncompliant products, and replacing them with products that adhere to the law’s requirements. Blue Cross determined long ago to keep one, pre-Obamacare plan open through 2014. This ensures continuous coverage for our existing individual members who haven’t chosen a new plan. The last thing we want on January 1 is for people to go without coverage," Loepp wrote in a Detroit Free Press opinion piece Nov. 24.
