Missouri Bill Would Fine Insurance Companies Who Accept Federal Subsidies

Republican sponsor says federal law prohibits subsidies in states that don't run their own exchanges


Missouri would strike another blow against the federal Affordable Care Act under a bill filed by state Sen. John Lamping, R-Ladue.

The bill would suspend insurance companies' state licenses if they accepted subsidies offered by the federal government to help pay health insurance premiums for low- and middle-income Missourians.
