Shopping for Insurance Outside of Covered California

healthinsuranceFor the roughly two million Californians who currently buy health insurance on their own, only about a third will qualify for government tax subsidies through Covered California. And without that subsidy to offset prices, there’s little incentive for people to buy on the state exchange. Many people who earn too much to expect government help will be shopping for off-exchange plans, where they’ll have more options. What are off-exchange plans?
