California health plans recently filed financial reports for the first six months of 2013 and a significant majority were profitable. Of the fifty plans that filed reports to the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC), forty-three reported net income and only seven reported a net loss. This compares favorably to the thirty-five that reported net income and fifteen that reported a loss during the first six months of 2012. However, twenty-six of the fifty plans reported lower profits or a greater loss than the same period in 2012.
