The Affordable Care Act will have a profound effect on health insurance markets starting next year. Covered California will play a central role in implementing the ACA in California through its role as the health insurance exchange where millions will be purchasing new, standardized insurance policies in 2014. This presentation discusses all the changes on the horizon for California and the nation. It presents evidence from the UCLA/UC Berkeley CalSIM model regarding who will benefit from insurance subsidies and Medi-Cal expansion, and who will most likely remain uninsured in 2014.
