Los Angeles Times

California Medical Assn. officials announced Thursday that they had sued Blue Shield of California alleging that the health insurer’s new online doctor rating system is inaccurate and misleads consumers.

Blue Shield’s Blue Ribbon Recognition Program, launched in June, analyzed about 6,000 doctors statewide and posted blue ribbons on its website next to the names of those who met national standards for quality care.
