California exchange seeks alternative options for online individual market

Covered California, California’s state-operated health benefit exchange marketplace, is seeking information on alternative options for its individual market web portal to determine potential benefits relative to increased enrollment, feasibility and costs.

The exchange issued a Request for Information (RFI) on March 18 seeking information relative to an “online consumer-facing retail agent” or a platform enabling independent agents to offer online quotes for individual coverage. Last month, Covered California delayed until fall 2014 the launch of the web portal for small group coverage sold through its Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).

Responses to the RFI are due March 28.
