Los Angeles Times

Customers of three California health insurers will get some breathing room after the companies agreed Thursday to delay rate increases for 60 days, isolating Blue Shield of California as the lone holdout.

Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna and PacifiCare agreed to the delay to give the state Department of Insurance time to examine their recent rate filings, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said.
