While Covered California bathes in the glow of positive press today for only increasing its 2016 rates by 4 percent on average, what few are mentioning is that healthcare costs are slowly shifting from employers and insurance companies to policyholders.

If a public agency had $2.3 million tucked away for voter registration, you would think it could tell the public details – but not Covered California.
The health exchange said $1.4 million is for printing and mailing and the rest is for the policy unit. No further details were given. A spokeswoman said that documents confirming that this money is going to voter registration and what exactly the money will be funding would not be available until June 19. The Covered California Board is expected to approve the 2015-2016 budget on June 18.
