Paving the way for the 2014 opening of California’s online insurance marketplace, officials on Wednesday rolled out the standard benefits that must be included in each policy and detailed what policies would cost for all those eligible for federal subsidies.

A married couple with an annual income of $62,040, for instance, would pay $491 a month for a midlevel plan with a $2,000 deductible and $45 copays for doctor’s office visits. Premiums would be much lower for those with less income. A couple with a combined income of $23,265, for example, would pay $78 a month.
