Support Assemblymember Dave Jones' Bill AB 2578 to Stop Outrageous Rate Hikes by Health Insurance Companies
It's Time to Regulate Health Insurance Rates just like we do with car, property and casualty insurance under Proposition 103 which has saved consumers billions of dollars.
That's why Assemblymember Dave Jones re-introduced AB 2578 - the Health Care Affordability Act - to make sure that strong consumer protections are in place to prevent outrageous rate hikes for health insurance. Under AB 2578, HMOs and health insurers would need to receive approval from the Department of Managed Health Care or the Department of Insurance before they could increase any rate premiums. Without this new legislation, we will continue to see skyrocketing health insurance premiums, just like the recent one announced by Anthem Blue Cross which raised premiums on its individual plan product by as much as 39 percent.
