Media Coverage of CHA Lawsuit Extends to San Diego Region 

Media coverage of the California Hospital Association (CHA) lawsuit against Anthem Blue Cross includes a local print article and mentions on local radio stations.  

CHA filed the lawsuit on April 23 against Anthem Blue Cross, one of California’s largest health insurance companies, noting the insurance giant consistently leaves thousands of its patients stranded in hospital beds long after they have been medically cleared for discharge, a violation of California law.  

The San Diego Union-Tribune article covers the topic, while live mentions on radio stations KPBS-FM and KOGO-AM provided highlights.  

Other California-based media coverage includes CalMatters and the San Francisco Chronicle, while the lawsuit received national attention from Bloomberg and Becker’s, among others.
