On Covering Californians Better in 2015

"Shopping for health insurance before the marketplaces was like shopping for a car before the internet."

Millions of previously uninsured in California and across the country were covered during Year 1 of the ACA's health insurance marketplace enrollment. But there is still a lot to be done in terms of communicating the message to the millions more who are still uninsured; beyond becoming insured, it's important for any consumer to know what kinds of coverage they are getting at what price points - and how best to utilize their insurance once they have it.
