Consumer Watchdog Praises Insurance Commissioner Poizner for Health Insurance 'Rescission' Rules, Pans Schwarzenegger Administration for Failure to Regulate HMOs
Date:6/3/2009

"The administration's quiet failure to follow through on its promised rules betrayed patients who were medically harmed and forced deep into debt by the illegal cancellation of their health insurance policies," said Flanagan. "Heavy lobbying and empty promises by insurance companies are not sufficient reason to abandon protection of the most vulnerable patients."

The DMHC is responsible for regulating Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and some Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs) which provide health care to approximately 22 million Californians. The director of the DMHC is appointed by the governor. The Department of Insurance regulates some PPOs and traditional indemnity health insurance which provide health care to approximately 5 million people. The commissioner of the Department of Insurance is elected.
