Blue Shield gives 80,000 policyholders a 90-day reprieve on cancellations
San Francisco Chronicle

Blue Shield will let some California policyholders extend their coverage for an additional 90 days — until March 31 — under a settlement with the California Department of Insurance announced Tuesday.

The settlement is specific to Blue Shield of California Life & Health Insurance Co. — one of two Blue Shield companies operating in the state. It does not necessarily presage a widespread delay in health policy cancellations.
