California gets ready for healthcare reform

California is one of 17 states in the nation that has taken the federal government up on the option to roll out healthcare reform on its own.

The state will screen, pick and offer insurance plans to nearly 6 million residents who, under the new law, must have it by January 1, 2104. Peter Lee, the executive director of California’s healthcare exchange said it’s a complicated task, but California is too diverse for a one-size-fits-all plan or a free-for-all of providers.
