Covered CA lowers budget and projected enrollment figures. Covered CA has used up most of the $1 billion in federal start-up money. Some uninsured folks still find health insurance unaffordable despite the health law’s premium subsidies.
The budget details include proposals to:
• Spend $58 million less compared with the current fiscal year, a 15% reduction.
• Devote the largest portion, $121.5 million, to outreach, sales and marketing. That’s down 33% from the current year.
• Maintain the monthly $13.95 fee (Learn more ⇒ on this hidden fee – InsureMeKevin.com) for each individual policyholder, which would raise $233.2 million in revenue.
Many consumers dropped out right away because they failed to pay their initial premium for coverage to take effect.
In addition, Covered California said, about 160,000 people whose incomes fell shifted into Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program for the poor. And fewer people than expected migrated to Covered California from Medi-Cal, officials said.
Many Californians who signed up in 2014 were closer to the federal poverty line and often paid just a few dollars a month for health insurance, thanks to generous federal subsidies.
The remaining uninsured were closer to the cutoff for those federal dollars, meaning they had to pay more of the premium themselves.
