San Francisco Chronicle

Several health insurers said Wednesday they plan an early start on a slice of health care reform by pledging to limit the circumstances in which they cancel coverage when a customer gets sick.

UnitedHealth Group Inc., Humana Inc. and Blue Shield of California all said they will drop, or rescind, coverage only in cases where a patient has committed fraud or intentional misrepresentation.
