Covered California and the Affordable Care Act
October 1st marked the launch of Covered California, the California insurance exchange created as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Covered California is available for individuals that are not eligible for health insurance through their employer or don't have access to health insurance. Covered California has a menu of affordable health insurance options for individuals to choose from.
Looking ahead, ACA requires all individuals to have health insurance effective January 1, 2014. In addition, all health plans must comply with ACA guidelines that prohibit individuals to be denied coverage due to having a pre-existing health condition and waiting periods for insurance may not exceed 90 days. Employers will be required to offer affordable coverage to all employees working an average of 30 hours per week and implement specific IRS reporting requirements effective January 2015.
