SB 133 protects consumers’ continuity of care
Yesterday, Covered California, which enrolls 1.4 million Californians, announced that all 11 health plans will continue to participate in 2018 and unveiled the rates for next year. Overall, California’s marketplace remains stable despite constant federal attacks on the health system.
“This is not about politics or Obamacare, it’s about doing the right thing and protecting people’s health.”
Due to a surge of enrollment, Covered California extended the deadline for enrolling in health plans that would start January 1, 2017. Consumer advocates urge Californians to sign up for coverage, then to be active in the political debate and action around whether to repeal or replace those benefits.
