Editorial Calls on Senate To Pass Rate Regulation Bill
A Sacramento Bee editorial states that "California has a big loophole when it comes to health insurance" because officials "can review health insurance premiums [but] have no power to reject them." The editorial continues, "The Assembly has done its part to change that, passing AB 52," and now "it's up to the Senate." The Bee notes that other states have enacted rate review legislation, concluding, "California should, too."
