Editorial: ACA Is ‘Going Better Than Expected’ in California
A Contra Costa Times editorial argues that the Affordable Care Act is "already working" in California and "so far, it's going better than expected." It notes that because of the ACA, more than one million previously uninsured residents have coverage and 400,000 young adults up to age 26 can remain on their parents' insurance. It adds that insurers can no longer deny coverage to applicants with pre-existing conditions and that premium costs for the state's insurance exchange "are significantly lower than anticipated."
