State insurance chief faults health exchange for cancellations
Los Angeles Times

Stepping into the national backlash over health policy cancellations, California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones faulted the state’s health exchange for requiring insurers to terminate coverage Dec. 31, but acknowledged that he has little power to stop it.

Jones reiterated his support for President Obama’s healthcare law Tuesday, but he said these cancellation notices and the resulting avalanche of consumer complaints were an unnecessary blunder.
