Fishy

All of the talk about State Auditor Beth Wood has me wondering about the release of the State Health Plan audit.

As you may recall the state passed a State Health Plan bill that was massively unfair to state workers while not asking anything of Blue Cross, the administrator of the SHP. Blue Cross claimed that it had nothing to do with the SHP funding shortfall.

The week after the SHP bill was passed, Wood released an audit noting that Blue Cross had everything to do with the SHP funding shortfall. The timing was certainly convenient.

Did anyone at the General Assembly ask Wood to hold the audit until a bill was passed? Did Wood let anyone in the General Assembly know about the release date for the audit so that legislators could pass a bill and protect Blue Cross? Someone should check.
