Insurance gender bias efforts stall in Connecticut legislature
Hartford Courant, April 7, 2009
Gender-based pricing for health insurance isn't going away soon in Connecticut, as efforts by activists who oppose it have stalled in the legislature and at Aetna. Aetna Inc. has quashed a shareholder proposal that questioned gender-based premiums. NorthStar Asset Management Inc., a Boston-based firm that does socially responsible investing, had wanted Aetna to publish a report addressing public concerns about the rating practice.
