Aetna pulls out of another Obamacare health exchange

By Caroline Humer

(Reuters) – Aetna Inc has decided not to sell insurance on New York’s individual health insurance exchange, which is being created under President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform law, the fifth state where it has reversed course in recent weeks.

The third-largest U.S. health insurer has said it is seeking to limit its exposure to the risks of providing health plans to America’s uninsured, but did not give details about its decision to pull out of specific markets.

“We believe it is critical that our plans not only be competitive, but also financially viable, in order to meet the long-term needs of the exchanges in which we choose to participate. On New York, as a result of our analysis, we reluctantly came to the conclusion to withdraw,” Aetna spokeswoman Cynthia Michener said.
