Health insurance enrollment continues to be a major challenge in California.
While the state’s insurance exchange opened in January, it has been plagued by technical glitches and outages.
While many Californians are able to find coverage through an online marketplace, some are struggling to enroll in the state-run insurance marketplace, the state government’s website, which has been shuttered for several months.
In California, many are still struggling to find their insurance options, with many paying out-of-pocket fees to the state for their health care needs.
Gavin Newsom (D) announced that the state would continue to roll out its exchange through the state health care exchange, the California Health Benefit Exchange, or CalHealthExchange.
However, those who can’t find their own insurance coverage are still facing the same challenges.
In the past few weeks, the Sacramento Bee reported that a new online portal has been created to help Californiaans find affordable health insurance plans.
The website, CalHealthCare, launched in early May.
According to the Sacramento Register, CalCareExchange allows users to search for health insurance providers, purchase plans, compare rates and view coverage and rates from other insurers.
Those looking for a new insurance plan can log in to CalHealth.
The site allows users who do not have health insurance to pay a fee to the government, which helps to offset out-the-door costs associated with paying for health care.
CalHealthExco is designed to give Californians access to affordable health coverage and has been a huge success, with the state reporting that it has seen an increase in enrollment of new residents.
However, it is not clear if the state will continue to provide the same coverage for as many as 15 million people as it did for the previous two years.
