California’s health care exchanges not harmed by ruling, officials say

The Obama administration’s decision not to penalize large firms for failing to provide health insurance to workers next year will not harm California’s implementation of the health care overhaul, officials said Tuesday.

California is creating an exchange to sell insurance to individuals and small employers, not to large firms, spokeswoman Anne Gonzales said.

Neither the timing nor the content of policies offered on the exchange – Covered California – will be affected, Gonzales said.
