Major health insurers in California to resume offering individual policies for children
Los Angeles Times

California’s largest health insurers, fearing they’ll lose new customers in the state’s lucrative individual insurance market, have canceled controversial decisions last fall to stop selling policies for children.

The insurance companies abruptly halted the sale of individual policies for kids in September rather than comply with provisions of the nation’s new healthcare law that required them to accept all youngsters under age 19 regardless of their medical conditions.
