California may bar gender-based health plan

San Francisco Chronicle, May 14, 2009
California's Legislature is considering barring health insurers in the state from "gender rating," under which women typically pay more than men for the same health plan. Insurance companies argue that the practice, barred in 10 states nationwide but allowed in the 40 others, is legitimate and based on actuarial calculations of risk. Proponents of the change say it is discriminatory and reflects an outdated perspective on healthcare.
