Massachusetts rejects health insurance rate hikes

Boston Globe, April 2, 2010

The Massachusetts Division of Insurance has denied 235 of 274 increases proposed by health insurers for plans covering individuals and small businesses. The rulings, following a review process set in motion by emergency regulations Gov. Deval Patrick filed in February, mark the first time the state has used its authority to turn down health premium increases. Insurers said the move would usher in an era of price controls, and vowed to appeal to the state or through the courts, the Boston Globe reports.
