Exchange expands small biz plans
Orange County Register

Covered California is offering greater flexibility and a wider choice of health plans this year to small businesses that purchase coverage for their employees, the state-run exchange said Friday. The exchange, which sells health policies to companies with fewer than 51 workers, said starting Oct. 1, they can offer their employees two different levels of coverage, using the exchange’s “metal tier” system. Until now, they have only been able to offer one plan level.
