Covered California will offer quality ratings for health plans
Sacramento Bee

Consumers shopping for health care on California’s new exchange will see quality ratings for insurance plans as soon as next year. The direction by the Covered California board Thursday came after three large insurers criticized a staff recommendation to delay moving ahead until more information could be gathered about the current plans. Covered California Executive Director Peter V. Lee said the agency was concerned that offering ratings information for only a small percentage of the plans would be misinterpreted by consumers and dissuade people from enrolling.
