Health insurer Alameda Alliance dropped from Covered California
Los Angeles Times

California’s health insurance exchange lost one of its 12 insurers because a nonprofit health plan failed to get a necessary state license, reducing the number of choices for some consumers.

Alameda Alliance for Health was immediately removed from the state exchange, called Covered California, because it didn’t meet financial solvency requirements in its application for a commercial insurance license, officials said.

The exchange had given the nonprofit health plan an Oct. 31 deadline to get that license.
