California insurance chief asks Anthem Blue Cross, PacifiCare, Aetna to halt increases
Los Angeles Business Journal

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, who took office just last week, said late Tuesday he asked Anthem Blue Cross, PacifiCare and Aetna to hold off for 60 days on raising rates beyond those in their most recent filings. The announcement came after Jones requested late last week that Blue Shield of California delay increases of as much as 59 percent on some individual policies.
