CaliforniaChoice small-business health exchange adds Sutter HMO
Sacramento Business Journal

Sutter Health got approval from state regulators Monday to offer its HMO to small employers through the private insurance exchange CaliforniaChoice. Coverage will be available Dec. 1 in the Sacramento region, Sonoma County and San Joaquin Valley. Twelve plan designs will be offered. The move offers Sutter Health Plus a new forum to expand enrollment among small-business owners. It gives CalChoice traction to gain membership in Northern California — and it adds another plan to a private-sector competitor with Covered California.
