CMA updates exchange toolkit

September 04, 2013

In 2010, Congress passed historic sweeping health care legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), which reformed the for-profit health insurance industry and beginning in 2014 will provide health insurance to most of the nation’s uninsured. Under the ACA, two thirds of California’s uninsured will be covered by private insurance through a health insurance exchange purchasing pool. The exchange’s goal is to start pre-enrollment in October 2013.


CMA's recently-updated toolkit, "CMA’s Got You Covered: A physician’s guide to Covered California, the state’s health benefit exchange," was developed to educate physicians on the exchange and ensure that they are aware of important issues related to exchange plan contracting.



The toolkit is available free to members only at www.cmadocs.org/federal-health-care-reform.
