Covered California adds third insurance company for SLO County in 2016
San Luis Obispo Tribune

San Luis Obispo County residents who buy health insurance through Covered California will have one more choice when they select an insurer for 2016.

Covered California announced this week that United Healthcare has been approved to sell insurance on the exchange in 34 under-served counties, including San Luis Obispo. In the two years that Covered California has been operating, SLO County residents have been limited to two insurer choices — Blue Shield of California or Anthem Blue Cross — which drew criticism from people because of the limited options.
