Blue Cross Extends Canceled Insurance Policies

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

Anthem Blue Cross of California announces that it plans to extend Healthcare Policies through February for more than 100,000 of it's policy holders.

Some think the public widespread anger is partly why Anthem granted the extension. But mainly, Anthem postponed the cancellations because it didn't meet state requirements to give sufficient notice to those policy holders.

Still, a big chunk of Anthem's California customers, as many as 400,000 will be canceled by December 31, 2013. Those people will have to upgrade to an anthem plan that meets the minimum requirements of the affordable care act.

Anthem Blue Cross is the second to grant an extension. Last week, Blue Shield of California granted a three month reprieve for 115,000 policy holders.

We spoke with people in West Hollywood, including Reza Farahan of the Bravo show, 'Shahs of Sunset'. This was their reaction to the healthcare changes.
