Covered California announced in a recent seminar that it does not have the capacity to oversee and manage group policies within the exchange. Representatives from Covered CA are strongly recommending that small and large group policy holders continue to utilize the expertise of licensed agents to select, manage and explain the details of the new policies in and out of the Affordable Care Exchange.
Small business options in the Exchange will include the Four Metal plans offered in the individual arena. Group coverage will be offered with Blue Shield, Health Net and Kaiser. Businesses with less than 25 employees are eligible for Premium Assistance (tax credits.) All of the resultant changes with the Affordable Care Act necessitate working with a trained, licensed agent.
