ABC News

If you rely on Blue Shield of California for your health insurance, you could be paying a lot more staring in March.

The San Francisco based company wants to raise rates for nearly 200,000 policy holders, pending state approval.

Blue Shield just increased rates in October, and again on January 1.

The March increase would amount to a 30 percent rate hike in just six months. Blue Shield blames the hikes on rising health care costs.
