    Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico announced today that it is pulling out of the New Mexico health insurance exchange. The company's request for a 51% rate increase for 2016 was denied by the state. In response, BCBS-NM lowered that request all the way down to an 11% increase. The state didn't allow that either. Go figure...
