Santa Monica, CA - Consumer Watchdog will announce the approval of a settlement with Anthem Blue Cross of California today of a lawsuit brought on behalf of HIV/AIDS patients allowing them to opt-out of a program that would have required them to obtain their medications by mail order. Consumer advocates will also comment on the new rates announced in Sacramento by the California Health Insurance Exchange and why rate regulation is needed to make premiums affordable for consumers.

The lawsuit, filed in January in San Diego Superior Court, alleged that Blue Cross's mandatory mail order program announced late last year illegally targeted HIV/AIDS patients, threatening their health and privacy.
