Twelve health plans — one fewer than expected — have signed contracts with the new Covered California health exchange to participate next year for individual coverage. The even dozen includes giants like Anthem Blue Cross of California, Blue Shield of California, Health Net and Kaiser Permanente and smaller regional players. Ventura County Health Care Plan, originally the 13th plan in the roster, “opted out of the exchange in the first year,” Covered California said Wednesday.
