Blue Cross asks for rate increase to be restored (Listen again)
(2010-08-24)
(KSFR) -
After months of controversy, Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico returns Wednesday to the state insurance division to seek a rate increase.

The company had been approved for an average 21 percent increase in April following two sets of double-digit increases last year. But public criticism and questions from the Public Regulation Commission, followed by the resignation of the superintendent of insurance, led to that increase being revoked.

On KSFR's At Noon midday news, we explore the background of the current controversy.
