Blue Shield of California to give $167 million back to some customers
Los Angeles Times

Embattled health insurer Blue Shield of California is planning to give back $167 million to some policyholders this year and to return more money in future years.

Bruce Bodaken, chief executive of California’s largest nonprofit health insurer, says that individual policyholders –- but not people with employer plans — will get a 30% credit on one monthly bill this year. That will average $80 for an individual policyholder and $250 for a family of four.
