About one-third of the 2 million consumers who bought health insurance through Covered California later left the state’s insurance marketplace – most for other coverage, according to new data released Thursday.

The vast majority of those who left – nearly 85 percent — stayed insured, according to the release by Covered California.

The data highlight the on-again-off-again nature of the individual insurance market, with many people leaving because of common life changes such as getting a job or getting married.
