Durham City Council votes to keeps Blue Cross Blue Shield as city's health insurer

DURHAM (WTVD) -- Durham City Council voted on Monday to keep Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina as the city's health insurer.

Council members were considering ditching the hometown company for Connecticut-based Aetna, but some council members raised issues with Aetna's past.

In the 19th century, Aetna issued life insurance policies to slave owners that covered their slaves.
