ABC News

More than 240 people are being let go from Blue Shield of California locations in Lodi, Sacramento, Rancho Cordova and El Dorado Hills.

The health insurance company said they need to make the changes to their workforce, and are offering severance packages to 408 employees statewide. About 240 of those are at the four Sacramento-area locations. Of those 242 positions at those four locations, 72 positions will be refilled “to best implement our strategy”. Less than a year ago, Blue Shield of California signed a 10-year lease for their location in Rancho Cordova.
