California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones is criticizing Blue Shield of California for “unreasonable” rate hikes, a charge the insurer denies.

Jones will hold a news conference in Los Angeles on Thursday to discuss the increases, which run as high as 19.9 percent. The new rates could affect about 268,000 Blue Shield policyholders, according to a statement issued by Jones’ office.
