NYT Editorial Touts ACA Successes in California
According to a New York Times editorial, "Californians got a double dose of good health care news late last month." The editorial notes that since the Affordable Care Act took effect, fewer Californians reported having trouble finding a doctor or paying their medical bills and insurer premiums have seen a modest increase. The Times argues that premiums remained low in part due to a "law giving the exchange power to decide which insurers can sell policies, which gives it leverage to demand lower rates."
