Jerry Brown subpoenas data from California’s largest health plans
San Francisco Business Times

California Attorney General Jerry Brown has subpoenaed financial data and documents from the state’s seven largest health insurers, as part of an investigation into potentially illegal practices, according to published and broadcast accounts Thursday afternoon.

“We have been looking at these companies for a number of months and are very concerned that some of them are unjustly raising premiums and denying payment of legitimate claims,” Brown said in a statement. “Not only are the rate increases devastating to Californians strapped by the economy, but in some cases, they are possibly illegal.”
