pdf California Implementing and Improving the ACA Individual Insurance Reform

In 2010-13, California Governors signed key bills to put in place key consumer protections in the private insurance market to help facilitate the smooth implementation of the Affordable Care Act in California. The urgency of implementing health reform helped lead to the enactment of key state bills to establish a comprehensive definition of essential health benefits, align consumer protection standards between regulators, and move toward greater standardization of plans to provide better security for consumers and reduce the possibility of adverse selection.
