Congressman Chris Collins is blasting the Affordable Care Act after BlueCross BlueShield has announced its withdrawing from its Medicaid programs.

It will affect six western New York counties, including Wyoming, Erie and Orleans. Effective this Halloween, 53,000 western New Yorkers are losing their current Medicaid plan, Collins says. The company says residents will transition to a new plan.

He says this is another "tangible negative" effect of the legislation "directly impacting individuals and families."

In a news release he says, “I fear BCBS is the first of a number of insurers who, due to Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, will no longer be able to financially support their Medicaid programs.”
