After serious errors led health insurer Anthem Blue Cross to cancel a massive increase in health insurance premiums last week, consumer advocates are calling for a review of pending rate hikes by other big insurers in California.

A prominent healthcare advocacy group urged the state’s two insurance regulators Tuesday to seek independent assessments of all increases in premiums for individual policyholders and those who get insurance through small employers.
