Regulations released Tuesday will prohibit insurers from charging women a higher premium than men

It's now illegal to charge women a higher premium than men for medical insurance just because they use more medical services.

But it's still perfectly legal to charge men more for life insurance and car insurance because they cost more to cover.

Not in socialist California. Auto insurance is unisex rated. Also, I fully expect unisex rating legislation on all insurance products including life insurance nationally. Just a matter of time.

Here in Pennsylvania they installed "gender equity" in car insurance rates many years ago (and my two daughters got royally SCROOOOOOOD as a result)
