Los Angeles Times

California raises the curtain on its new health insurance marketplace Tuesday, offering new options for millions of consumers as part of Obamacare.

Officials are holding a series of events across the state to promote the start of a six-month enrollment window beginning Oct. 1.

Covered California, the state’s new exchange, is trying to reach more than 5 million people who are uninsured or don’t receive health insurance through work. The rollout in California will be closely watched nationwide as a key barometer of President Obama’s signature law.
