California Regulator Fines Insurers for Underpayment

Hosted by

California's seven largest health insurance companies have been fined almost $5 million for late payments and underpayments to hospitals and doctors. The State Department of Managed Health Care says mistakes the companies regard as a "cost of doing business" could cause healthcare delivery "to grind to a halt."  Duke Helfand is following the story for the Los Angeles Times.
