Harvard Pilgrim, Fallon Community Health Plan still at odds with Massachusetts

Boston Globe, April 16, 2010

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care of Wellesley and Fallon Community Health Plan of Worcester, two of the Massachusetts' big health insurers, face fines after they submitted to the state revised premium rates for individuals and small businesses that differed from what regulators ordered. The two submitted base rates lower than those rejected by the state Division of Insurance, but higher than the April 2009 rates the state ordered. Insurance Commissioner Joseph G. Murphy said both insurers failed to comply with a clear directive and would be notified within 24 hours about how they will be penalized, the Boston Globe reports.
