Blue Cross of Kansas City hit its first obstacle in shedding its non-profit status and entering the public market. Conrad Jungmann has that story from the capital...
Before Blue Cross of Kansas City can start making money, state law requires they turn over their profits to another non-profit organization. Social activists fear insurance costs will rise. Senator Ronnie DePasco has introduced a bill to make sure those funds are properly handled.
This bill comes on the heels of a Blue Cross of St. Louis decision to end its non-profit status last year. That case is still pending.
From Jefferson City, I'm Conrad Jungmann.
