San Mateo woman sues Anthem
San Francisco Business Times

A San Mateo woman has filed a class-action lawsuit against Anthem Blue Cross for allegedly using rate hikes to force individual policyholders to drop their insurance, according to the San Mateo County Times. Anthem wants to discard less-profitable individual policies by raising rates and shutting off policies to new customers, according to the lawsuit filed April 7 in San Mateo County Superior Court by Burlingame-based attorney Ronald Galasi, the Times reported.
