Firms Line Up for California Health Insurance Marketplace

lineupTwelve insurance companies have signed contracts to join the state’s newly created health benefit exchange, the Covered California agency announced Wednesday. The state exchange, a consumer health insurance marketplace set up under the national health care reform act, will open for business in January. It will permit consumers to easily comparison shop for health insurance available at variety of costs and coverage levels. The health insurance companies will offer coverage in the individual exchange and six of them will offer plans through the exchange’s Small Business Health Options Program market according to a report at the Contra Costa Times.
