Some health insurers raising rates again

Some health insurers are bumping up rates yet again to reflect changes mandated by the latest federal health overhaul law as well as state reforms that will go into effect Jan. 1.

Blue Shield of California, for example, has sent letters informing customers with individual policies that their premium will go up in the low single digits because of the federal law.

Some of those similar policyholders also could see their rates go up as much as an extra 17.7 percent to account for a new state law that will prohibit insurers from charging women more for insurance than men.
