CHA Comments on Covered California’s Draft Options for Improving Affordability

Yesterday, CHA submitted comments on Covered California’s draft Options to Improve Affordability in California’s Health Insurance Market. In the letter, CHA reiterates its readiness to partner with Covered California and the Legislature to build upon the Affordable Care Act by implementing premium and cost-sharing subsidies, an individual mandate and penalty, and reinsurance.

CHA urges Covered California to examine each option to determine how it may impact total enrollment, coverage rates, choice of coverage, new funding for proposed subsidies, and the effect on federal premium tax credits.

CHA commends Covered California for its leadership in this area and looks forward to future collaboration to ensure that all Californians have access to health care coverage.
