Pennsylvania's Blues to undergo unfair-trade inquiry

Philadelphia Inquirer, July 20, 2009

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department announced that it planned to investigate whether any of the state's four Blue Cross & Blue Shield insurance companies have engaged in "anticompetitive or unfair trade practices" that violate the law. Examinations of Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Capital BlueCross, Highmark Inc., and Philadelphia-based Independence Blue Cross are to be finished by early 2010.
