California State Sen. Ed Hernandez and his wife, Diane, are optometrists.
Diane handles some insurance matters for their practice, and she recently told him that a health plan had emailed to request more information: It wanted confirmation that they were both participating providers.
"I didn't say anything because I was afraid she'd be mad at me," says Hernandez, D-West Covina.
That's because the additional paperwork was probably his doing.
