Indiana Department of Insurance Commissioner Stephen Robertson's statement that he will not move to restore canceled policies because of the Affordable Care Act seems be a stonewalling political move rather than a benefit to the citizens of Indiana!
Putting aside the pros and cons of Obamacare, President Barack Obama stated insurance companies would be allowed to offer plans that don't meet minimum requirements set out in the Affordable Care Act. It seems Hoosiers should be able to retain insurance coverage of some kind.
It seems Robertson is more concerned with the workings of corporate insurance companies than the citizens. He claims offering these coverage plans will not benefit the Indiana insurance market and cause uncertainty.
If this is his main concern, he should go to work for the Indiana insurance industry and allow someone interested in the citizens to serve them!
