Cost-shifting scheme

So, Insurance Superintendent Al Iuppa has determined that the Dirigo-subsidized health insurance plan has resulted in $47 million in savings. And this amount will be passed along to the other insurance carriers, who will then pass it along to their customers.

Savings? Sounds like a cost- shifting scheme to me.
