UnitedHealth to cease individual health coverage in California
Market Watch

In case you missed it…. The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that UnitedHealth Group Inc.’s UnitedHealthcare unit will stop selling individual health insurance policies in California and won’t be participating in the state’s health exchanges.

UnitedHealth joins Aetna Inc. in declining to participate in the most populous state in the nation. UnitedHealth’s decision forces roughly 8,000 customers to find other means of insurance while Aetna will put 50,000 policyholders into someone else’s hands.
