Governor’s veto is setback to VSP’s hopes to sell through Covered California
Sacramento Bee

Gov. Jerry Brown has vetoed a bill that Rancho Cordova’s vision insurer, VSP Global, says was necessary to let it sell coverage through the state-run health care marketplace, Covered California.

Brown on Thursday vetoed Assembly Bill 1877, which VSP says was an essential mechanism to providing access to millions of uninsured Californians.

VSP, the parent of Vision Service Plan, reacted with outrage.
