Another One Bites the Dust

Last we looked, there were only a handful of Co-Ops still fogging a mirror (metaphorically, of course). And that list just got shorter:

"Evergreen Health Cooperative Inc. (“Evergreen” or “company”) will not be issuing or renewing individual health benefit policies ... Evergreen Health plans are not available on Maryland Health Connection for the 2017 plan year"

This means that folks currently insured by the faltering carrier will have to choose a new one, and they have just about a week to do so (if they want to remain insured come January 1). Now, if they'd purchased their current plans through the Old Line State's Exchange (Maryland Health Connection), they'll be automatically "transitioned" into a comparable plan with another carrier. If they don't wish that to happen, then they'd best get crackin'.

Those who bought off-Exchange are on their own.

Still, I'm a bit puzzled as to how this can be happening. After all:
