Schwarzenegger moves to implement health insurance rate review
Los Angeles Times

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger moved Wednesday to implement a major element of the new national healthcare overhaul, seeking a $1-million federal grant to strengthen the state’s review of health insurance rates.

Much of the money would pay for actuaries to evaluate premium hikes sought by insurers. Schwarzenegger also wants insurance companies’ planned increases to be posted on their websites and on the websites of state regulators.
