About Holding Insurers Accountable
Health insurance companies have enormous power in California. In fact, 94% of the commercial health insurance market is controlled by just six companies. They are increasingly denying enrollees access to care, and even refusing to pay for care that’s already been delivered, all while enjoying record profits. According to the federal government, some insurance companies are denying more than a quarter of Medicaid managed care requests. CHA is working to hold insurers accountable for meeting their basic responsibilities to patients and advocating for increased oversight and accountability for insurance companies.
