Californians enrolled in Covered California will see premiums rise by an average of 12.5 percent next year, according to rates released Tuesday.
Eleven health care companies currently participate in the program. Despite uncertainty about federal action on health care, Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee says all 11 will continue in 2018.
But there is one, signficant caveat.
"Anthem Blue Cross of California will be returning in just three of Covered California's regions," Lee announced today in a teleconference with reporters.
