Same health plan, different costs in Los Angeles, San Bernardino counties
Los Angeles Daily News

While Californians may grumble about high health care premiums, consumers pay less through the Affordable Care Act in the Golden State compared with half the nation, according to a national analysis.

Even so, slight variations exist in Los Angeles County, where some pay more than others for the same insurance plan.

Data studied by Digital First Media show that the benchmark health plan for a 50-year-old Sacramento woman who makes $40,215 annually and who chooses a low-cost silver-level health plan through Covered California will spend $3,619 on health insurance, the highest statewide.
