Jones Calls for Review of All Recent Health Plan Rates
Assembly member and Insurance Commissioner candidate Dave Jones (D-Sacramento) is calling upon the Department of Insurance to examine recent rate filings by health insurance companies, in light of an independent auditor finding flaws with the methodology Anthem Blue Cross used to calculate premium increases. Insurance Department spokesperson Darryl Ng said the department "has a rigorous system in place to review rate filings." The department, however, cannot reject rate increases.
