Did Your Blue Shield Health Insurance Rates Increase?

Published on

When will health insurers get the message?  They can't raise our rates and cut our benefits and expect to get away with it! Drop us an email and help teach the insurance companies a lesson.

Consumer Watchdog is now investigating recent rate increases on eight different health insurance plans sold by Blue Shield in California.  We need to hear from you to get a better understanding about which policies were hit with rate increases and whether Blue Shield offered consumers the option to switch to other coverage. If you have one of the plans listed below, we'd be grateful if you would send Consumer Watchdog an email at [email protected].

We won't share information about you with any other person or organization. Please include your name, city or town, telephone number, the name of your plan (from the list above), whether you have received a rate increase since 2009 (including, if you have it available, the amount of the increase), and whether Blue Shield offered to let you switch to other coverage. Also let us know a convenient time for us to call you. 

Many thanks for your help. We rely on consumers like you to help us hold corporations—especially health insurance companies—to account.
