Covered California Announces Exchange Health Carriers

This morning, Peter Lee announced the insurance carriers selected to provide coverage to California residents in the California Health Benefits Exchange for individual & family health plans.  

A total of 13 health insurers, some regional and some state-wide, will provide health plans to the Covered California exchange.  They are:

*Alameda Alliance for Health
Anthem Blue Cross of California
Blue Shield of California
*Chinese Community Health
*Contra Costa Health
HealthNet
Kaiser Permanente
*LA Care  Health Plan
*Molina Healthcare
*Sharp Health
*Valley Health Plan
*Ventura County Healthcare Plan
*Western Health Advantage

*- denotes regional health plans not offering state-wide coverage plans

The state will be divided into 19 regions or rating areas for health plans and premiums.  All areas will have at least two health carriers available (LA will has six) with metro areas having the highest number of carriers and rural areas less.

Two requirements placed on the participating carriers are good networks of providers and affordable premiums.  

Covered California is an 'active purchaser'  and some plans either withdrew from consideration or were rejected from consideration because they would not or could not meet the exchange requirements.
