Blue Crose Blue Shield says adminstrative law judge rules in favor of rate hike
A judge has ruled in favor of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota's rate request of 14.8 percent, the company said in a news release issued today.
Administrative Law Judge Susan Bailey's ruling reverses last summer's decision by the state's Department of Insurance and recommends the rate increase become effective immediately.
However, North Dakota Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm has 60 days to accept or deny the recommendation, according to the BCBS news release.
