Two Massachusetts health insurers to resume sales with old rates

Boston Globe, April 8, 2010

Seeking to tone down their dispute with state regulators, two Massachusetts health insurers said they will, as ordered, resume making new policies available for individuals and small businesses using last year's base rates, not the requested double-digit increases rejected by the state. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Tufts Health Plan said they will market the revamped policies on the state's Health Connector website and through their own networks of independent brokers. Two other health insurance companies, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Fallon Community Health Plan, would not commit to offering new rates, the Boston Globe reports.
