Kaiser Permanente staying in ACA exchanges — 3 key notes

Kaiser Permanente will continue to offer plans on the ACA exchanges through 2018, HealthPayer Intelligence reports.

Here's what you should know.

1. The payer will continue offering coverage in every region it operates in, according to a statement Kaiser made to HealthPayer Intelligence.

2. CEO Bernard Tyson refuted Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini's claims that the exchanges were in a death spiral.

Mr. Tyson said said, "I would not use that term (death spiral) because we now have 20-plus million people getting access to care through the front door. We still have 30 million more with no coverage. We still have work to do."

3. Kaiser offers individual exchange policies in nine states.
