Two California Residents Sue Anthem Blue Cross Over Health Policy Cancellations
On Monday, two California residents filed separate lawsuits against Anthem Blue Cross, alleging that the insurer misled them into giving up their health policies that were grandfathered under the Affordable Care Act. Nearly 900,000 California residents have received cancellation letters notifying them that their current policies do not meet the minimum coverage requirements under the ACA. The two California residents are requesting that the courts block any policy cancellations unless Anthem members are allowed to return to their previous grandfathered health plans.
