Ex-Kaiser exec to head Blue Cross

Los Angeles Times, January 10, 2008
WellPoint Inc. has named former Kaiser Permanente executive Leslie Margolin to head Blue Cross of California, the state's largest for-profit health plan. The company's relations with doctors may need tending--many threatened to quit Blue Cross in 2007 after the health plan introduced a schedule that would have cut payments for about half the services and procedures provided by the physicians who serve its members.
