New online tools allow consumers to track health insurance rate hikes
Los Angeles Times

Health insurance consumers concerned about rate increases can now keep track of them online by visiting the California Department of Insurance’s website.

The department has launched a new electronic service to alert consumers when insurers file rates in the individual market, which serves people who do not receive health coverage through their employers. To sign up for the e-mails, go to http://www.insurance.ca.gov/email-updates/. Once there, click on “Sign up for a free account” and select which updates to receive.
