Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) today applauded the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) for finding Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of California in violation of state law for drastically overstating the availability of health providers on their new Affordable Care Act policies. According to the DMHC report, more than 25% of physicians listed by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of California were not taking Covered California patients or were no longer at the location listed by the companies. Anthem and Blue Shield account for nearly 60% of enrollment in Covered California, including a significant market-share in Rep. Huffman’s district.
