Top Execs of 2014: Peter Lee, Covered California
Sacramento Business Journal

Under Peter Lee, Covered California boomed out of the starting blocks for the first year of the new state health-benefit exchanges. The state had almost one in five of all new health exchange sign-ups in the nation, with more than 1.4 million enrolled. That’s more than twice initial projections of 580,000. Almost 70,000 consumers in the Sacramento region signed up and picked a plan, also double the number projected. Final numbers dropped a bit because some people failed to pay premiums, but Covered California’s 1.2 million is still the best in the nation.
