Sacramento Bee

Moving to make peace with a furious and influential Rancho Cordova insurance company, state officials are planning to tweak the rules of California’s fledgling online insurance market.

The company, Vision Service Plan, had threatened to leave California but said Friday it is “pleased” with the proposed new rules. The revisions are expected to be approved Tuesday. The flap is over the California Health Benefit Exchange, which is building the state’s new insurance market – a key element of the federal Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s overhaul of the health care system.
