For many people buying an individual health insurance plan through Covered California, being able to get an affordable policy was a dream come true.

In this county, 90 percent qualified for a subsidy to help them pay their monthly premiums.

Now the reality is setting in. Many doctors — particularly specialists — don’t take their insurance.
