Consumer Reports Touts Covered California’s Efforts To Eliminate Confusion Surrounding Health Plan Purchases
A new report from Consumer Reports touts Covered California's standardized health benefits, saying the exchange "eliminated much of the confusion" around purchasing health plans. "While the Affordable Care Act established plans that differ in generosity of benefits ... it did not require consumer cost sharing within those tiers to be identical. Covered California chose to standardize cost sharing within each tier," the report notes.
