    Tuesday | Inside Bay Area

    Health insurance companies have spent massive amounts of money to convince us to vote "no" on Proposition 45. Obviously, they don't want anyone controlling how they price their product to the consuming public. If you have health insurance through Covered California or are fortunate enough to be covered by an employer-sponsored health plan, you have some protection against excessive increases in health insurance costs.

    Friday Oct 24 | Inside Bay Area
