Giant insurer UnitedHealth wants to join California’s Obamacare market
Los Angeles Times

Two years after spurning the state, insurance giant UnitedHealth Group Inc. wants to sell Obamacare coverage in California’s exchange for 2016.

The turnabout comes as the nation’s largest health insurer is expanding into Obamacare policies across much of the country after initially bypassing the government-run marketplaces.

But UnitedHealth’s bid in California faces opposition from consumer and labor groups over the company’s marketing of a bare-bones health plan to large employers.
