Update on Implementation of the ACA: Is California Ready?

Gerald Kominski, PhD

On October 1, 2013, uninsured Americans had the opportunity to navigate the new government subsidized health insurance plans via online exchanges in each state. Covered California estimates that nearly 1.4 million Californians will sign up by 2014. But were they ready by October 1st? California is considered one of the most crucial states for enrollment efforts and rushed to train 20,000 enrollment counselors and ceritfy almost 12,000 insurance agents to sell the new health plans. Were technological delays and political resistance indicators that we were not fully prepared? Dr. Gerald Kominski, a renowned health care reform expert, will discuss the results of the October 1 opening day and what to expect for the California Health Exchange in 2014.
