Covered CA denies Obama’s request
San Diego Union-Tribune

Despite a request from the president and the state’s insurance commissioner, Covered California declined Thursday to clear the way for insurance companies to continue canceled health policies into 2014.

Board members of the state’s health insurance exchange voted 5-0 to stay its present course and allow an estimated 900,000 health plans to lapse at the end of the year because they do not comply with all of the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
