2012 Senate Bill 1293: Repeal BCBS tax exemption; regulate like regular health insurer

Passed 33 to 4 in the Senate on October 17, 2012 To convert Blue Cross Blue Shield into a “nonprofit mutual insurance company” (technically "owned" by the policy holders), make it subject to the same regulations as regular health insurers, and no longer exempt BCBS from state and local taxes. The bill requires BCBS to spend $1.5 billion in accumulated reserves over 18 years to augment government health welfare programs.
