Lee Announces Exchange Will Move to Payment-Based Reporting on Enrollment Numbers
During an interview, Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee said the exchange plans to begin reporting enrollment numbers based on the number of policyholders who have paid binder fees to ensure their coverage. In addition, he credited the exchange's relative success to the state's decision to standardize benefit designs, effective outreach and a focus on the core functionalities of the enrollment process. However, he added, "We tried not to have too many bells and whistles, but when we did is when we stumbled."
