Covered California rates come in lower than expected
Sacramento Business Journal

Individuals in the Sacramento area who shop for insurance coverage next year at Covered California — the new state health benefit exchange — will have four insurers to pick from: Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield of California, Kaiser Permanente and Western Health Advantage. Statewide, rates will vary by family size, age and income, but for comparison purposes, they range from two percent above to 29 percent below the average 2013 premiums small employers pay in California’s most populous regions, exchange staff said Thursday. And rates came in lower than expected.
