State lawmaker sues California health exchange over cancellations
Los Angeles Times

A Republican state lawmaker sued California’s health insurance exchange, saying it overstepped its authority by refusing to allow more than 900,000 people to keep their existing health policies.

In his suit, state Sen. Ted Gaines (R-Rocklin) said the Covered California exchange violated federal and state laws by requiring participating health plans to cancel policies by Dec. 31 that didn’t comply with new requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
