Proposal would combat rescissions of health insurance policies in California

Los Angeles Times, June 3, 2009

California Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner plans to unveil proposed regulations to combat the health insurance industry practice of dropping members with costly illnesses. Poizner's draft regulations would allow applicants a "not sure" answer to questions about their preexisting medical conditions. In addition, they would bar insurers from dropping someone if the companies failed to thoroughly investigate an applicant's medical history before issuing a policy.
