Two Massachusetts health insurers ordered to use 2009 rates

Boston Globe, April 22, 2010

A judge has ordered Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Fallon Community Health Plan—two of the Massachusetts' largest health insurers—to submit April 2009 rates for insurance covering individuals and small businesses, the latest development in an ongoing dispute between the state and carriers over premium increases. Both companies said they would comply, even as they proceed with administrative appeals in an effort to charge higher rates. Four other insurance companies have already complied with the state's order to base premiums on 2009 rates, the Boston Globe reports.
