Busy week, huh?

Guess that's what you get when you throw a bunch of insurance commissioners in a room and tell 'em to figure out what Congress meant when they passed health care reform.

OK, well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but it sure doesn't feel like it this morning. The commissioners wrapped their latest meeting with a unanimous vote on what carriers can count as medical costs. This stems, of course, from health reform's mandate that insurers spend at least 85 percent of premiums on medical costs for larger groups – 80 percent for small groups. (Anyone else think maybe this is one of those things we should have figured out before we made this thing law?)
