Anthem Blue Cross seeks large rate increase on CT health insurance

Hartford Courant, July 1, 2009
Anthem Blue Cross wants to raise rates by as much as 32% on Connecticut health insurance policies that consumers buy on their own. A leading seller of individual policies, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is seeking regulators' approval for increases averaging 23% this fall. Most of the company's 56,000 Connecticut members under age 65 in individual plans would see premiums rise between 22% and 30%, although some would see no change.
