Health exchange to talk standard benefits
Sacramento Business Journal

The board at Covered California — the new name for the state health benefit exchange — will make a decision about standard benefit designs for health plans when it meets in Sacramento on Tuesday. The new state health insurance program for individuals and small businesses will begin enrollment Oct. 1, 2013 and launch coverage Jan. 1, 2014. It is expected to serve as many as 4.7 million Californians when it gets up to full speed.
