Anthem Blue Cross Slipping Out of Top Spot in California Health Insurance
My quick assessment, from the first half dozen quotes I’ve run, is that Anthem has given up a huge chunk of their lead over the other individual and family health insurance companies in California. Several of their lowest cost plans no longer exist (ClearProtection 5000, CoreGuard 10000), and the remaining plans are now similarly priced to Aetna, Blue Shield, Cigna, and Health Net plans. Going into the remainder of the year, I expect to see more new clients opting for Blue Shield of California and Cigna because they offer richer benefits at lower costs.
Stay tuned for more.
