Anthem Blue Cross wants to raise rates

Many policyholders who buy the coverage as individuals say the company has notified them to prepare for a rate increase effective May 1. Some customers could see rates rise as much as 40 percent in less than a year.

The health insurer tried but failed to get a similar increase last year. Recently, Blue Shield delayed plans to raise rates for some 200,000 policyholders by as much as 59 percent.
