Schwarzenegger weighs two bills to boost insurance regulation

September 8, 2010
California lawmakers last month rejected a bill that would have subjected health insurance companies to the same kind of regulation that auto insurers now face, requiring them to get prior approval from the state when they want to raise their rates. But Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger probably would have vetoed that bill anyway. Instead, the Legislature sent the governor two bills that seek to strengthen the state's oversight of the industry while stopping short of direct rate regulation. It will be interesting to see if these more modest bills, which are still opposed by the insurance industry, escape Schwarzenegger's veto pen in the weeks ahead.

The Blue Cross business model

March 11, 2010
Anthem Blue Cross has been under scrutiny for its recent rate hikes. But that scrutiny should go beyond the rate hikes to their overall business practices—and the broken health system that rewards bad behavior. The company has perfected a business model based on collecting premiums from the healthy and avoiding as much as possible actually providing coverage to those who are sick.

Assembly panel presses health regulators for answers

March 10, 2010
A bipartisan majority on an Assembly committee that oversees the state bureaucracy is turning up the heat on California's insurance and health plan regulators to explain what they've done to help people who have been kicked off their insurance coverage after filing claims. The members of the Assembly committee on Accountability and Administrative Review also want the departments to do more to make sure that a recent drop in the number of coverage rescissions is not temporary.

State rule can’t control health care costs

February 15, 2010
State regulators, including Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner, are hyping their deal with Anthem Blue Cross to postpone a big planned health insurance rate increase until at least May 1. But the rule that will govern whether that rate hike can ultimately go into effect is probably not very well suited to controlling health care costs.
