Sanford Wants To Offer Insurance In ND
August 19, 2009, 10:40 AM
As Sioux Falls-based Sanford Health prepares to merge with Fargo, North Dakota-based MeritCare, it also is
seeking to offer health insurance in North Dakota.
Sanford has requested permission from the state Insurance Department. Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm says a review of the application will take two to three months. He says there are a host of issues to look at, from what type of service would be offered to whether the company seeking permission has adequate staff.
Hamm says he wants to see North Dakota's insurance market become more competitive. But he says he also wants the right type of companies in the state, those that will provide good service and will be around "for the long haul."
