Blue Shield Policy Closures Blocked in CA
Health Leaders Media

The California Department of Insurance and Blue Shield of California are at odds over the insurer’s efforts to close 23 health plans and transfer those members to other products. Blue Shield contends that it is following the law, while the CDI has ruled that it has “disapproved” the block of business closures. That means Blue Shield can’t proceed “with the block closures period,” a CDI spokesperson told HealthLeaders Media in an e-mail exchange.
