California’s health exchange still doesn’t list doctors, hospitals
Vallejo Times-Herald

Nearly two weeks after the debut of Covered California, the state’s online health insurance marketplace, its website still doesn’t offer a way to find out which doctors and hospitals are included in each health plan.

The website tool designed to help shoppers cross-reference tens of thousands of doctors and hundreds of hospitals that belong to the networks of Covered California’s 12 insurance providers finally launched last week after earlier promises that it would be available on Oct. 1, the day similar exchanges opened for business nationwide under the new federal health care law.
