I am glad to hear Blue Cross of California is no longer asking doctors to reveal their patients' medical history if there is anything to give the giant insurer grounds to cancel the patients' coverage. I don't believe it, but it's nice to hear. ("Blue Cross halts letters amid furor," Feb. 13.)
Blue Cross has been doing this for a long time, and I have to believe it will continue. No one tells the medical insurance industry what not to do.
