PRC members question authority of insurance staff on health insurance rates (Podcast)
(2010-03-04)
(KSFR) -
Members of New Mexico's Public Regulation Commission have decided to hold a public hearing on the question of healthcare rate increases by Blue Cross. The question was put on today's PRC agenda after news reports surfaced this week that Blue Cross was raising rates by an average of 25 percent this year following a 20 percent hike in 2009. Commissioners questioned how staff members of the state insurance commission could approve this level of increase without review by the insurance commissioner.

KSFR's Debrianna Mansini was at the PRC meeting.
