  • Description

The insurance market in California is set to undergo enormous changes when the Affordable Care Act (ACA) takes full effect in 2014 and millions of residents become eligible for public insurance or subsidies for private insurance. This report provides a performance baseline for health plans and insurers before the law begins to influence the marketplace. Data primarily from the state's two insurance regulators, the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) and the California department of insurance (CDI), were used to examine market share, enrollment, financial performance, share of premiums devoted to medical care, and consumer satisfaction.
