Another California health insurer offers cancellation delay
Sacramento Bee

As turmoil over terminated health insurance policies continues across the nation, Anthem Blue Cross of California on Tuesday became the latest company to grant a brief extension to some of its customers.

The company announced the move after failing to issue timely notices, allowing roughly 104,000 consumers with expiring policies to keep their coverage through Feb. 28. Typically, only those who purchased plans before the March 2010 passage of the federal health care law meet the cutoff for “grandfathered” status.
