California Healthline

Insurers selling health coverage through California’s insurance exchange have limited the number of doctors and hospitals available to policyholders in an effort to lower premiums, according to an analysis of data by the Los Angeles Times (Terhune, Los Angeles Times, 9/14). The ACA’s health insurance exchanges — which primarily will serve individuals and small businesses — are designed to function similarly to websites like Amazon and Expedia, allowing users to choose among various health plans through an easily navigable online store.
