Covered California Selection of Health Plans is Good News for Consumers

As we near implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA), the door to coverage is opening for many uninsured Californians. Today’s announcement by California’s health benefit exchange – Covered California – is good news in two respects: 1) at least two health insurance options will be available throughout most of the state; and 2) affordable premiums may be available to qualified individual consumers.
