Health Insurance Sign-Up Must Be Simple, Editorial Says
A Los Angeles Times editorial argues that state lawmakers and Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) administration must ensure that Covered California -- the state's health insurance exchange -- and counties provide newly eligible health insurance consumers with "hassle-free customer service." Because the Affordable Care Act's success depends on more Americans obtaining health coverage, the state should "make sure that whether applicants contacted Covered California or a county welfare office, they could be enrolled on the spot in whatever insurance program they were eligible for."
