SB 1473 – CaliforniaStatus: Enacted
Year Introduced: 2022
California Health Benefit Exchange.
Existing federal law, the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), requires each state to establish an American Health Benefit Exchange to facilitate the purchase of qualified health benefit plans by qualified individuals and qualified small employers. PPACA defines a “qualified health plan” as a plan that, among other requirements, provides an essential health benefits package. Existing state law creates the California Health Benefit Exchange (Exchange), also known as Covered California, governed by an executive board, to facilitate the enrollment of qualified individuals and qualified small employers in qualified health plans as required under PPACA. Existing law requires the Exchange board to perform various functions, including determining the criteria and process for eligibility, enrollment, and disenrollment and coordinating that process with state and local government entities administering other health care coverage programs, including, among others, the State Department of Health Care Services.
