Anthem, Blue Shield top Covered California market share; Kaiser gaining

Anthem maintained its top spot on the Covered California insurance marketplace, according to information obtained by the Los Angeles Times. Anthem Blue Cross has a 29 percent market share, having signed up more than 350,00 new members and renewals since November 2014. Blue Shield of California is second with a 27 percent share. Kaiser, which now has more than 21 percent of the market, or 260,000 policyholders, made big gains in the second enrollment period by cutting rates. The integrated managed care consortium also attracted customers who had trouble finding doctors on the narrow networks offered by Anthem and Blue Shield, the Times said. Article
