Anthem Blue Cross Violated State Law More Than 700 Times

Anthem Blue Cross has received a lot of  unfavorable publicity for their recent rate increases. The Los Angeles Times also reports that they have committed many violations of the law:

California’s largest for-profit health insurer violated state law more than 700 times over a three-year period by failing to pay medical claims on time and misrepresenting policy provisions to customers, the state’s insurance commissioner said Monday.

Anthem Blue Cross of Woodland Hills could face fines of up to $7 million stemming from the alleged violations from 2006 to 2009. Commissioner Steve Poizner said that the insurer repeatedly failed to respond to state regulators in a “reasonable time” as they investigated complaints over the last year.

    And yet the Republicans still claim that self-regulation is the answer to everything.  Not that that’s a real surprise…
