Consumer Reports

Consumers Union, the advocacy arm of Consumer Reports, has called on Blue Shield of California to drop plans to hike premiums for some customers starting in March.

Consumers Union filed comments on Blue Shield’s rate plan with the Department of Managed Health Care, raising concerns about Blue Shield’s third double-digit rate hike in the past three years. Consumers Union’s comments are based, in part, on an actuarial analysis by AIS Risk Consultants.
