California Insurance Commissioner
State Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones has renewed his criticism of Blue Shield of California Saturday and plans to conduct a full review of the insurance carrier’s planned rate increase.
As one of his first acts in office, California’s new insurance commissioner said he’ll back the national health care reform law by proposing emergency legislation to ramp up enforcement.
Democrat Dave Jones has been elected California’s next insurance commissioner in a contest that attracted heavy independent spending by the insurance industry.
With some big political contests here in California, the race for State Insurance Commissioner is finally getting some attention. That’s because of some big, last minute donations.
The insurance commissioners’ race might not feature boldface names, but the job is influential and the winner will be tasked with navigating the changes brought by federal health care reform on the state level.
