Today Covered California released a list of carriers who will offer plans inside of the SHOP Small Group Health Exchange beginning in January 2014.
I have links below to the information at Covered California. Six total insurance carriers for the entire state, 3 plans in LA Metro and 3 here in Santa Clara County.
The six "finalists" for SHOP include:
*Blue Shield of California
*Health Net of California
*Western Health Advantage
*Chinese Community Health
*Sharp Health Plan
Conspicuously absent from the Covered California small group SHOP exchange are national carriers Aetna, UnitedHealth and Anthem (Anthem Blue Cross CA is a subsidiary of Anthem/Wellpoint).
