Anthem to delay insurance rate hike amid criticism
USA Today - The Associated Press

Health insurer Anthem Blue Cross will postpone its much-criticized plan to raise rates for some California residents who buy insurance on their own, after reaching a deal Saturday with state regulators. Anthem’s planned rate hike, which the state estimates would affect about 700,000 customers, averaged 25% and would have been as high as 39% for some.
