Anthem Blue Cross president departs after rate brouhaha
Los Angeles Times

The president of Anthem Blue Cross, which may have given ObamaCare a boost over the finish line with its huge proposed rate hikes early this year, has left the company.

WellPoint Inc., Anthem’s Indianapolis-based parent, said Tuesday that Leslie Margolin is no longer with Anthem Blue Cross. Officials said that Mark Morgan, Anthem’s vice president of small group sales, will be acting president on an interim basis, effective immediately.
