Aetna to stop selling individual plans in California
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Aetna Inc. has notified state regulators that it will stop selling individual health insurance policies in California, just weeks after opting out of the exchange that is being established as part of the national health care reforms.

California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones said Tuesday that Aetna’s decision is “not good news” because consumers need more choices. The decision does not affect people who have Aetna insurance through their employer.
