Private health exchange has options for small companies affected by new mandate
Sacramento Business Journal

CaliforniaChoice is bullish on expansion of the small-group market.

Like its public counterpart, Covered California, the private insurance exchange is prepared to welcome employers with 51 to 100 employees into the program Jan. 1, 2016.

California law still requires this group to be considered “small employers” for the purpose of health insurance, starting next year. That means they have to offer essential health benefits and adhere to different rating rules that could make coverage more expensive.
