The Affordable Care Act will soon allow the state's uninsured people to purchase coverage through an exchange, called "Covered California." Lori Abbott reports that there already websites available to help guide people through this process.
State health officials have unveiled the first television ads that will be part of the multi-million dollar marketing campaign for California's new health insurance marketplace. Called "Covered California" the marketplace or "exchange" represents a major step in the implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act, sometimes known as Obamacare. It will become fully operational next month. Two ads were released today, one in Spanish, and this, quite different spot in English.
