Leslie Margolin, the president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, has left the company.

Mark Morgan, vice president of small group sales, was named acting president on an interim basis, effective immediately, Anthem Blue Cross said in a statement.

The exit comes less than three months after the health plan withdrew its request to raise premiums by up to 39% on members in its individual health plans after state regulators found “substantial errors” in its rate filing.
