Momentum builds against Blue Cross attempted rate increases

California Progress Report on the 39% proposed rate increases from Blue Cross, who made record profits last year.

California’s two Senators have weighed in as well, urging action and review at the state level. As the San Francisco Chronicle reports, Senator Boxer urged state Attorney General Jerry Brown to investigate the proposed rate increases and Feinstein asked state Sen. President Pro-Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, to introduce legislation to regulate rates.

The US Congress will investigate, and as will multiple California agencies.
