Anthem Blue Cross delays rate hike
Sacramento Business Journal

Rate hikes for thousands of people who buy individual insurance through Anthem Blue Cross — originally slated to take effect March 1 but bumped to May 1 due to public outrage — have been put off again, an Anthem spokeswoman confirmed Monday. How long is unclear. The Woodland Hills-based company is waiting for results from a third-party review of the issue, spokeswoman Peggy Hinz said. Individual members will receive a notice before any rate change occurs.
