Sacramento Business Journal

Local hiring is picking up as Covered California — the new name for the state health benefit exchange — charges ahead with plans for a new insurance marketplace in 2014. With 13 new staff, the program is up to 66 employees. Another 36 hires are in the works, which will bring the Sacramento headquarters to more than 100 by Jan. 1, executive director Peter Lee reported at a board meeting Tuesday. Ultimately, the number is expected to double to about 200.
