Affordable Health Care Coverage
We are committed to making health care affordable and accessible for Californians. The Affordable Care Act is an excellent opportunity to improve
access to and contain the costs of health care. Covered California, California’s Health Benefit Exchange, is a new marketplace in which people will
be able to purchase comprehensive and affordable health care coverage for themselves, their families, and their small businesses.
