Attorney general, state Assembly turn up the heat on California's health insurers

Sacramento Bee, February 26, 2010

California Attorney General Jerry Brown has issued subpoenas to the state's seven largest health insurance companies: Aetna Health, Anthem Blue Cross, CIGNA, Health Net, Blue Shield of California, Kaiser Permanente and PacifiCare. Brown said the information will aid an investigation into "possibly illegal" rate increases. The state Assembly, meanwhile, targeted Anthem Blue Cross for a subpoena to compel release of information about compensation to its California executives and internal discussions on raising rates, the Sacramento Bee reports.
