Some Insurers Didn’t Give Customers Enough Warning Before Ending Plans

Here’s a story you may have missed in the blitz of news on health plans being canceled because of the Affordable Care Act: Some insurers didn’t give their customers the 90-day notice required by law that their policies would be terminated.

That’s the case in California, where 104,000 Anthem Blue Cross policyholders facing cancellation at yearend will have the option to extend their plans at current rates through the end of February, the state’s insurance commissioner, Dave Jones, announced this week. A week earlier, 115,000 Blue Shield customers in California got a similar reprieve.
