Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles city prosecutors Wednesday accused the parent company of insurance giant Anthem Blue Cross of California of falsely stating that it had changed its procedures for canceling the policies of patients after they become sick.

The Los Angeles city attorney’s office said that WellPoint Inc. misled the public earlier this year when it denied reports that it targeted women with breast cancer for cancellation.
