About 108,000 residents of Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Merced, Mariposa and Tulare counties are believed to be eligible for subsidized coverage under the federal health law signed by President Barack Obama in 2010, which gives people the choice of being insured or paying a tax penalty next year.

Covered California approved four health plans for that region, offered by Anthem Blue Cross, Kaiser Permanente, Blue Shield and Health Net at premiums between $223 and $508 a month for a 40-year-old single adult, depending on level of coverage.
