California Health Benefit Exchange

The purpose of the California Health Benefit Exchange is to allow individuals and small businesses to compare plans and buy insurance on the private market. The Exchange will open for enrollment beginning in 2014. Federal healthcare reform will provide tax credits and subsidies to those who fall below the income threshold.

Some work has already been done to identify the potential areas where the Child Support Program and the ACA will intersect. See below for documentation:
