For the record

February 02, 2009

Insurance-bias lawsuit: An article in Wednesday's Business section, about a lawsuit that says state regulators are allowing insurers to charge women more than men for individual health policies, misstated the position of the insurance commissioner on the suit. The suit by the city of San Francisco contends that Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner and Cindy Ehnes, director of the state Department of Managed Health Care, approved a system that allows women to unfairly pay higher premiums and says that it should be declared unconstitutional. Wednesday's article incorrectly said that Poizner's office disagreed with the lawsuit and that the rates were in line with state law. The commissioner's office has not taken a position on the lawsuit or the constitutionality of the state law.
