Peter V. Lee, the head of the state’s health insurance exchange, was awarded a 20-percent bonus for his efforts in launching the federal program in California.

The performance-based award, which pencils out to $52,528 on top of his base salary of $262,644, was disclosed at the exchange’s board meeting Thursday. Covered California board member Diana Dooley said officials would look at possibly adjusting Lee’s base pay in the coming months.
