Covered California – California’s Health Insurance Marketplace
One of the important parts of the Affordable Care Act are state-run competitive health insurance ‘marketplaces’ (also known as ‘exchanges’) where individuals and small businesses (defined by Blue Shield generally as companies with less than 50 employees) will be able to purchase affordable private health insurance for 2014. California’s health insurance marketplace is known as Covered California.
In addition to buying coverage through Covered California, individuals and small businesses can also purchase health insurance the way they do today from brokers and directly through health insurance carriers.
