Anthem’s decision to pull out of insurance market fuels angst in Conejo Valley
Ventura County Star

The decision by insurance giant Anthem Blue Cross to pull out of the individual insurance market is driving worries that some Conejo Valley residents could be forced to use a different hospital and possibly new doctors.

“I cried when I heard the news,” said Kathleen MacAller, a Moorpark insurance agent. “I knew how bad it’s going to be.”

Anthem announced earlier this year that the financial instability in the market for plans offered through the Affordable Care Act was causing it to yank its plans in Ventura County and much of California beginning Jan. 1, 2018.
